Windows 7: No recent documents for Word 2007

No recent documents for Word 2007

I have several program icons om my Start Menu, and by holding the mouce over an arrow (not shure if this is the correct translation from Norwegian), the most recent documents opens in a "window" at left.

Suddenly no "recent documents" appear for Word, but it appears for all other programs.

Attached is screendumps from holding mouce over "arrow" at Excell and Word.

Does anybody how to turn on the "recent dosuments" for Word here at the start menu? When I run Word, the recend doccuments appear at the "Office button", on the top left.

Excuse my bad English.

Perhaps you need to specify the number to keep - like this:
Customize the list of recently used files - Word - Office.com

Quote:

  1. Click the Microsoft Office Button, and then click Word Options.
  2. Click Advanced.
  3. Under Display, in the Show this number of Recent Documents list, click the number of files that you want to display.
