    But it's only work for jump list right? I mean it won't work for the quick access right? Because it still only shown 9 folder out of 16 That I set.

    The jumplist is changing, yes, it shown more than 8, now 11, but.. hmm..
    Is there anyway to edit the quick access? Thanks

    The Quick Access thing is a jump list, as you can pin/unpin your folders to/from it. Its content is stored in %appdata%\microsoft\windows\Recent\AutomaticDestinations\f01b4d95cf55d32a.automaticDestinations-ms

    I mean I want it to automatically acumulate as I change folder, like recent folders, so I don't need to manually pin it. I want it automatically shown more than 9 folder on quick access that I don't pin manually.

    I hope it doesn't confuse people. Thanks

    There can be two different groups in the Quick Access. One is called Frequent folders, one is called Recent items. Each group can be disabled in Options (via right-click on Quick Access).

    The Recent items part can be tweaked just a tiny little bit. Here's how:

    What I meant to say is, on the General tab in the Options panel, under Privacy there's two checkboxes (one is for recent files, one is for recent folders). In the article that I linked, near the bottom of the comments section there's an interesting tip from someone named Leo.

    I don't want to disable it, I just want to double the list item shown. Because now mine only shown about 4-5 folder that's recently opened, I want double it to 8 or 9 (pinned folder not included), so I could use it more and it's more handy then opening "Recent Folder" link

    AFAIK adding the "Recent folders" link shell:::{22877a6d-37a1-461a-91b0-dbda5aaebc99} to the nav pane is the only way to get there. If I open my %AppData%\Microsoft\Windows\Recent folder in Explorer, then I can use the Search bar in the upper right corner to do a search like this: kind:folder -zip
    But after it shows the search results, the button to save the search is missing. So, in essence, the functionality of "Recent folders" is very limited, or crippled by the fact that it is highly primitive. As you can see for yourself in the article that I previously linked, the user has to resort to a registry hack just to be able to get to his/her "Recent folders" in things like M$ Office. All that we can do is let the computer monkeys know about this severe shortcoming via the Feedback Hub, and wait another 5 years for monkeys to acknowledge (read: MAYBE acknowledge) that this is so.
