Recent documents in registry

  1. Hi

    I think I remember reading somewhere on EX-perience that there is somewhere in the registry that keeps a list of the recent programs that have been running. Does anyone know where it is please?

    Regards

    One place they are kept is in a folder in 'documents & settings\recent or my recent documents. Not sure which one. I get lost in xp. For the registry try a seach of the document name in regedit & see where you end up.
     
  3. Thanks but it was not recent documents i was after probably my fault for not being specific.

    Apparently there is a log within the registry that keeps a log of the programs and documents that have been used that day.

    This is what I am after, I know it was featured on Xp-erience once and that is how I know it exists.

    Can anyone help please

    Regards
