Purging the Recently Used File List

Word keeps a list of your most recently used files at the bottom of the File menu, so you can open a file you worked on recently simply by selecting it from the list. You canít purge the list selectively, but you can delete it altogether and start building it up again. Hereís how:

  1. Select Options from the Tools menu.

  2. Click the General tab.

  3. Deselect the Recently used file list check box to delete the current list.

  4. Click OK.

Now repeat these four steps, but click the Recently used file list check box to reselect it. Word will now start building a new list.
