Everything was fine until I opened MS Word, where I discovered that for some reason, the recent documents list on the File tab now only shows the last

    Re-enabling recent documents

    An update with auto-patcher disabled the recent documents under start menu in windows Xp. Any way to get it back?
    Also how can I set it to show only recently viewed text documents.

    Office 365 - removing recent documents

    You would need to go to the app that was used for that document and remove it from the recent documents list within the app. For example if a Word document shows up in the list and you want to remove it; open Word and then in the recent documents list within Word right click on the entry you want to remove and select Remove from list.

    Hi LizFG

    Windows 10 stores recent document lists in many places, it depends on the different application as to where that list is stored

    What application are you trying to find recent documents for?

    Also, in the meantime, open Windows File Explorer, on the left, click 'Quick Access' do you see the document(s) you are looking for listed there?
