You can edit the "Places Bar" by using TweakUI, a free utility from Microsoft. (To download, look about halfway down the right side of the page.)

This is the Places Bar:

After downloading/installing, do the following:

1. Run TweakUI
2. On the left side, expand Common Dialogs and click on Spaces Bar.
3. Click Custom Places Bar radio button
4. Enter the desired locations in the boxes below.
5. Click OK.
6. Done!
