- [Instructor] Hi, it's Bonnie Biafore.…In this week's tip, we'll explore several shortcuts…for accessing your project files.…When you first launch Project,…you see this screen that has your recent project files…listed on the left side of the page.…If you see the project that you want,…you can just click it to open it up.…But there are ways to make it even easier…to select the files that you want.…If you manage several projects at a time,…which is a pretty typical situation for a project manager,…you might want to have a handful…of projects easily available.…
By clicking the File tab and then choosing Open,…you go to the Open screen.…That lists your recent files on the right-hand side.…And if you look carefully when you point…at a project file, there's a push pin…on the right side.…Initially, it's horizontal, which means it's unpinned,…but if you click it, it switches…to vertical, and Project pins that file…to the top of the list.…
So it won't drop off, no matter how many…project files you open.…You can point at each project that you work on,…
