file name list in word open

When I used to enter a file name in windows 2007 open I would get a list of all files by that name and be able to select the one I wanted. Now I no longer get that list. I donít know how to be more specific! If you never saw this you would probably not know that this exists!

could possibly be to do with file extensions ie .doc/docx, may have changed file save type etc, just a thought

Have you by any chance started using a cleanup software? I know Ccleaner can be set up to clean MRU lists in MS Word.

When I enter a file name in open (MS word 2007) nothing is found despite what type of file I enter. I use full time a antivirus software so I know it’s not a virus.

Are you talking about autocomplete?

autocomplete for the search terms inside your browser and autocomplete in the open or save dialog boxes should be independent settings... you can have one on and the other off. But I'm not sure where to change the setting for autocomplete in the open/save dialog boxes in Office 2007 :-(

...maybe others know...
