    File Menu previously accessed files missing

    Up until a few weeks ago in any program if you opened the File Menu pull down named Files down near the bottom would be a list of the three or four files you used last, maximum four.

    However, those disappeared a few weeks ago from many but not all programs and nothing I have done or found seems able to restore them. Unfortunately the programs they disappeared from like Garmin's MapSource are the ones I used the feature the most.

    I'm running Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit.

    Hi rdinning,

    What are the things you have already tried to get the file names back?

    Have you tried right clicking the Start Orb and selecting Properties>Start Menu tab, and looking under Privacy to confirm someone has unchecked the option to "Store and display recently opened items...."? Also click the Customize button and check that the Number of recent items to display in Jump Lists: has not been changed to '0'.

    Do you happen to use a cleaner, such as CCleaner? If so, make sure the option to clean "Recent Documents" or "Taskbar Jump Lists" is clear of any check mark.
