    Start Menu Recent files


    On windows 7 it's convenient to have recent file at Start menu. How can I find this on windows 10?

    But this is very inconvenient. The Microsoft is weird, they remove good things and put them at wrong place.

    You can click the arrow next to File Explorer and there is a list of recent files.

    No recent files, only several folds here.

    There's a View option whether to show or not recent files on the Quick Access section.

    I agree with truelies. Recent Files on Start was very convenient and I miss this feature. In Windows 10 the only way to see recent files is to open up Windows Explorer. It shows Quick Access by default which shows Frequent Folders and Recent files.

    Amen to that - I was a huge user of Recent Files in Windows 7. Removing this is a real PAIN!
