Recently used file list has become unavailable in Word 2002 and XL 2002.

I'm using Win XP Professional
and Office XP Small Business

Tools/Options/GeneralTab/Recently Used Files

is greyed out.

Don't know what caused it. Perhaps something in Power Toys For XP TweakUI.

Would like to get it back

Hi

You both asked and answerd you own question .

>>>>Don't know what caused it. Perhaps something in Power Toys For XP TweakUI.<<<<

In weak ui under the parnoia tab is an option to clear the recently open'd or used files.

I did'nt know tweak could extend this function to app's other than windows .

did i help or just confuse you futher

Thanks for the input, but I still have the problem.

TWEAKUI version 2.01.0 does not have tabs. I reviewd all items in TWEAKUI, & made sure that I had no high level security settings.

I looked elswhere for security settings and relaxed those also. Surely, I may have missed one or more. Perhaps, I don't even know where to look.

Have done a few rebooots since my search.

Word 2002 Tools/Options/General/"Recently used file list" option is still greyed out and unavaiable.

Hi

Maybe if you post you question in the msoffice section of this forum..

Found this in another forum

<<<<<snip<<<<<<

http://support.microsoft.com/support/kb/articles/Q211/7/93.ASP

I don't know if it applies to Word 2002, but I guess the differences between both versions are not that important.<<<<

Here is a link to word 2002 if you havent been there already
