    We have Office 2007 installed locally on Windows XP desktop/laptop computers. When a user attempts to change the Recent Documents list from the default of 9 documents to anything else, it only stays that way until the current document is closed. When the application is closed and reopened the default of 9 documents is back. Is this how Office 2007 is supposed to function? I have done searches but have not come up with any good answer why this works/doesn't work the way I *think* it should. Thank you.

    Welcome to the lounge.

    No that is not how Excel 2007 should work. I tried it on mine and the change successfully lasted over multiple restarts of Excel. Now I am using Win-7 but this shouldn't make a difference.

    This information is stored in the registry so if you're users have limited access to the registry this could be a problem.
