  1. Where can I find the list of file names shown under QuickAccess


    I have found a couple of scripts for the registry that supposedly can control How Many files can be shown in the Quick Access space at once with a limit of close to 60. Normal display is more like 15. This has led me to hope that there might be a location where these names are pulled from. I am hoping to be able to see a list of all items that were shown in the Quick Access list for the past few days. The longer the better.

    These will be files that are not on the system in use, but were touched by it in some manner. Such as files that were in a network drive that were renamed or relocated to another place.

    I Only need the names showing path. I do not need to find the file or any other info about them in this way.
    I am currently working from ScreenShot printouts of the Quick Access lists as shown on some of the systems that worked on the files.

    The short story is that we THINK we are missing some files from a server but as no one has a list of what files are supposed to be there at all. So I have no way to know if a file is really missing or was just never added.
    I have already done all the usual file recovery etc. This is more a way to prove what certain people added.
    If it shows in their quick access as being in a folder on the server but is no longer there then we have a problem. I will ask another question in a separate poston that as i do have one possible cause

    Remove-ItemProperty -Path "Registry::HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion
    \Applets\Paint\Recent File List" -name file9
    ...

    you get the idea. ( too lazy to put it in a for loop and test it.

    or just open regedit and remove all the fileX from that key.

    Generating a .txt based file list in Windows 7

    I want to be able to generate a .txt file that lists all the files and folders in a specific folder on my PC, but don't know the name of any programs that do that. Searched on google a bit and came up with this guide, but it's for XP and I can't seem to find some of the folder options to modify the .bat file. Any suggestions? Thanks

    http://www.theeldergeek.com/file_list_generator.htm

    EDIT: The .bat file will do what I want if it is in the folder I want to do it in, but the option I want to add is having the right click option that it shows.
