Can Windows XP show me list of recently visited folders (using Windows Explorer)? I have seen solutions for Windows Vista/7 or solutions incorporating Internet Explorer, but I wanted something when using the standard Windows Explorer.

This is a useful article but only really gives a solutions in Windows 7

I did have a small third party piece of software before years ago for this purpose but I couldn't find it again. Is this somewhere lurking in Windows XP by default or something a small third party application can show me?

The bottom anwser on that question you linked to is specifically for Windows XP? – BloodPhilia Aug 23 '11 at 10:47
This is true so my wording is slightly wrong maybe but this is for ' recently visited files' as opposed to folders/directories =( – CodeBlend Aug 23 '11 at 10:49
Oh right! Got it! – BloodPhilia Aug 23 '11 at 10:52

Check out Filebox eXtender. Works with open/save dialog box too and also has a nifty favorites button.
