    greyed out recently used file (2002)

    My recently used files list disappeared sometime recently. I went to options and the check box to activate this function is greyed out and I cannot check it. Where did I do this?

    Hi, Franr -- are you on a network, or stand-alone?

    Hi Franr,

    This can happen if you recently used Tweak UI to remove documents from the Start menu. Word XP pulls the MRU list from the Recent folder.

    There are some additional settings you can use to prevent the display of documents in the start menu but still have your MRU list by turning off "Show documents in the Start menu"

    still have not solved the problem. Where is what I turn onor off. Have Tweakui but donot remember using it to cause this problem. New files to date have not come up when I use the drop down menu. So, even if I cleared documents a while ago the function is still inactive.

    Hi Franr,

    Tweak UI should be in your Control Panel. The two options I referred to are located on the IE tab:

    - "Add new documents to Documents on Start menu" should be turned on

    If you want to remove the documents on the Start Menu then
    "Show Documents on Start Menu" should be turned off.
