Default Location of things in V 2013

I was just upgraded to Office 2016 (sorry - I put the wrong version in the Subject field). When I opened Excel, I saw that the "Open" layout was different. I work for a business with multiple remote servers and drives I need to access, and there doesn't appear to be any way to "pin" these drive locations to the Open page so I don't have to repeatedly navigate through the Browse function.

The page has an "Add a Place" option, but it only allows you to select between OneDrive and Office 365 SharePoint. It doesn't give you any option to designate other locations, such as all the various drives I need to access. In addition, the page already has a link to "OneDrive" pinned to it, so the Add a Place option seems unnecessary or superfluous (why not just add BOTH options to the page and eliminate the "Add a Place" option since it isn't useful??? Doing that would take up the same amount of screen real estate and be less confusing.)

What specific steps do I take to pin server drives to the Open page? Thus far I've only been able to pin files, not locations. Thanks much!

You can pin specific workbooks, but not folders or drives. You can pin these for Save As however. It seems odd that this wouldn't be an option for Open as wewll.
