I know how to add under "Bookmarks" tab, but how can I add under "Computer"? Check the attached image.

I don't think that you can do that ever since Ubuntu 11.04 with the "Unity Enhanced" Nautilus file manager. I had the same problem since I just wanted home, system, mounted drives, and my bookmarks to show. An alternative is to install the pcmanfm file manager instead. It's almost identical to the previous Nautilus version, but without some of the context menu options. Heck, just play with both of them and see which one you like better.

You can try Thunar too, plenty of folks like that one as well. Last but not least, create yourself new folders within Pictures, Documents, Movies, etc., and then create bookmarks to just those folders. For example ... create a folder entitled My Documents within the default Documents folder. Dump all of the contents of documents into My Documents, and finally create a shortcut to the My Documents folder. That ought to do the trick, no? :D
