Showing More Items on the Recent Documents List

When you pull down the Office menu in Word, you see the various "File" commands on the left and a list of your most recently used documents on the right. This list is called the Recent Documents list, and most Word installations display up to 17 documents on this list. If you regularly deal with many different Word documents, you might want to see even more files on this list. Follow these steps to increase the size of the Recent Document list:

  1. Choose Office, Word Options to open the Word Options dialog box.
  2. Click Advanced.
  3. In the Display section, use the Show This Number of Recent Documents spin box to set the number of documents you want to see.
  4. Click OK.
