Windows 7: Where are recently viewed/edited documents in Word 2010 stored?

Where are recently viewed/edited documents in Word 2010 stored?

I'm assuming the list of recently viewed/edited documents are stored somewhere in a file. If so, what's the name of the file? I'd like to restore the list from a backup, if possible. Thanks,

Actually, the list of recently opend documents for word is stored in the registry at;

HKEY_Current_user\Software\Microsoft\Office\14.0\Word\File MRU

The 14.0 is for office 2010. It is different for different versions of Office.

Note that this list is different for each user account on your PC.

Also, each program has their own recent file list. Eg for powerpoint it would be..

HKEY_Current_user\Software\Microsoft\Office\14.0\PowerPoint\File MRU

To back up the list navigate to this key, then export it. Save as a reg file.

When you want to restore it simply double-click on the .reg file.

Note: You should always make a backup of your registry before importing .reg files.
