Changing the Office Recently Used File List in Office 2003

Microsoft as well as other software vendors have a handy feature in their software that will keep track of the most recently used files that you have opened in that program making it easy for you to open them quickly to continue working on them. The number of recent files shown will vary from program to program but it can be anywhere from 4 to 10 or more recent files that you can quickly re-open depending on the software.

By default Microsoft Office 2003 applications keep track of the last 4 files you have opened. When you go to the File menu you will notice a list of these last 4 documents that you can click on for a quick way to reopen the file. This list will change as you open new files making them the most recently opened files.

The number of recently used files can be changed if you want to Office to display more or less than the default 4 files.

To do this go to Tools then Options and then select the General tab. There you will see a section that says Recently used files list. From here you can change the number to anything from 0 to 9.
