  1. Can't find recent download that saved under user/App


    I downloaded CentOs7 VM software, but cannot find it anywhere on my computer. It defaulted to a folder that is deeply buried within another folder, that I cannot seem to find even with keywords. It's not in my downloads. I recall it saying something about App Data, but when I type in that it doesn't take me anywhere useful. I would like to find it but I know I can re-download it. Only thing is, this software is pretty large and I don't want it using up more memory than it already is.


    Thanks

    :)

    Recent (Save Files) - Change Default Settings to OneDrive


    Hello -
    Thanks for the return. Before I undertake changing the Registry, I have a question.
    The steps in my Registry, for my version of Windows 10, were a bit different, but I think I eventually got to the right spot.
    The last step is to change the number of places you want to list in Recent Places. In my case, the default Max Display listed 50 as the number. So, if I were to change that number, how do I know the Save As page will be one of those places? Or, a similar question, will this registry change delete the tab Recent from my Save As page? This is what I would like to happen.
    When I received my computer in Nov. 2016, the Recent tab was not listed in the Save As page. Something caused it to be added over time. Which brings me to this second question. Would there be any benefit in deleting the changed registry listing and reverting back to the default listing? See attachment.
    Jerry
