XP Home Edition - Missing option from File menu

  Binzy 12:22 14 Feb 2003

I seem to have lost the 'recently used files' list from the File menu on all my programs (Word, Excel etc.). How can I retrieve this?

The help from the Microsoft Helpline wasn't very helpful as it told me to click on the Options, Tools, General tab and check the recently used file list. When I click on Options the only topic under General is measurement units!

Looking at Word 2000, Tools, Options, General tab. near the bottom of the tick boxes is "Recently used file list", next to it is window to choose how many files you want to display.
Tick the box and it should return.
I've no idea why the lists *should* have disappeared in the 1st place though.
