Right-Click the Explorer icon in the taskbar.

Right-Click "Windows Explorer" and choose "properties"

For the Old school "My Computer" drive list replace "target" value to this:
%SystemRoot%\explorer.exe ::{20D04FE0-3AEA-1069-A2D8-08002B30309D}

For the current user "documents" folder replace "target" value with this:
%windir%\explorer.exe /n,::{450D8FBA-AD25-11D0-98A8-0800361B1103}

For the current user profile folder replace "target" value with this:
%windir%\explorer.exe shell:Profile
