    Icon shortcut to open last used or edited word file /mFile 1 no longer works

    Is there a command line in word 365 / office 365 to open that last word file that was worked on.??
    I tried the /mFile1 and it no longer works
    Thanks

    Perhaps File1 was a macro used by jrklein which is why is used to work.

    Hmm, an undocumented switch, it seems. As I don't have Office 2013, I can't test whether it works there on a PC other that the OP's but, if it doesn't, that may be because it's been deprecated - which is something MS warns against relying on, since they might delete it or change its behaviour at any time.
    Cheers,

    It does work in Word 2013 for me.

    Documentation and another method at http://word.mvps.org/faqs/customizat...centlyused.htm.
