In this video, learn how to access the recent documents list, pin or unpin documents to that list, remove items from the list, clear the entire list, and modify the recent list settings to set the number of files to appear, and show some of them in backstage view for even quicker access.
- [Instructor] If you have certain Word documents…you like to work on on a regular basis,…you want to have quick and easy access to those files…without having to remember where you stored them…or what you named them.…That's where the Recent List comes in very handy…but most people don't realize the Recent List…is fully customizable.…So, we're going to spend some time with the Recent List…in this week's Word Tip.…Really doesn't matter if you have a file open…or what that file is,…we're going to go directly to the File tab…up here on the top left corner.…
Next, when we go to open,…you'll see Recent at the top highlighted…and a list of recent documents showing up…over here on the right-hand side.…They're listed in chronological order…from the one you accessed most recently…to the oldest.…However, you may have files that are pinned.…Notice I have a pinned category up here…and as I look to the right,…there appears to be a push pin…and you can see it's set vertically.…That means that this document will always appear…at the top of my Recent List…
