Hi.

 

Welcome to Microsoft Community.

 

I just wanted to confirm, if you are looking for Jump list feature in Windows 10.

Press Windows + i keys on the keyboard simultaneously, setting screen appears, choose personalize click start on the left panel and enable “recently opened items in the jump list in the start/task bar.

 

I hope the above suggestion helps. If this is not the issue that you are looking for, please come back with a clear description and we would be glad to help you.

 

Thank you.

That is for windows itself, my problem is with office. In the 2013 version you can pin folders the same way you pin files that you use frequently.  I can't do that anymore with 2016 version.

I too am looking for this feature in 2016- it was a great addition to 2013 and I used it all the time but now I have upgraded to 2016 and we do not have the option to pin folders when going to File | Open.

Strangely the option is there when choosing File|Save.

Help is required!

Totally agree pinned folders is essential where is it, I don't want to pin only files when I have 100's of files in a folder I want quick access to Excel.... 2013 office it was a standard feature... is it because they want you to put it all in One Drive? which I don't want to as already using dropbox

I have the same issue in Office 2016 - you can't pin folders - further, you can't add a web address as an additional place like you could in Word/Excel 2013 - you can only add Office 365 SharePoint and OneDrive.
