    Hi,

    I can't get the Most Recently used Documents setting to stick. Every time I close and instance of Word and open a new one it is unchecked again. Is there a registry setting that I can create or set to make it the default?

    Thanks,

    Cris

    There are many possible causes for this...
    • Sometimes when settings are not saved, it indicates that Word's settings key in the registry is corrupted.
    • Other times, it could indicate that there is a problem with permissions (no permission to save changes to the registry).
    • In yet other cases, it could indicate that your company has a policy that blocks that particular setting, or that a template you load at startup (e.g., for a document management system) is turning it off.
    Can you describe your environment (version of Word, OS, whether this is a work PC) in more detail?
