Windows 7: Most Recently Accessed Files


27 Jan 2011   #1

Windows 7 Professional 64bit
 
 
Most Recently Accessed Files

I went directly from XP to Windows 7.

One of the options on the XP start menu was "Documents" which listed "My Documents" and "My Pictures" at the top (never used). Below that was the 10 most recently accessed files. The most recent files was extremely useful.

In the Windows 7 navigation pane there is a "Documents" selection but it doesn't list the most recently accessed files.

How do I get a listing of my most recently accessed files added to the Windows 7 start menu or taskbar?

Thanks for any help on this.

Right click on taskbar go to properties start menu tab then hit the customize button look for Recent items check it hit OK & apply will be in the start menu

Edit: & check the box for "Store and display recently opened items in the Start menu and the taskbar"

Bongo, that's it. I really appreciate it. As I learn more about Windows 7, I like it more. Everything is there if you know where to look. Many thanks.
