Open Recent Office 2008 Docs by Date

Office 2008 applications like Word and Excel now list recently opened documents on a File > Open Recent submenu. Choose More from that menu, and you'll get a multifunction Project Gallery dialog. Click the Recent button at the top and then select a date range in the Dates list to find files that were last opened today, yesterday, earlier in the week, last week, and so forth. (The Settings pane in the Project Gallery dialog lets you set how many recently opened files show in the File > Open Recent submenu.)

Send Article to a Friend

Shockwave Released -- Macromedia has released final versions of Shockwave for Director 4.0 Plug-Ins, and says it's hard at work on Shockwave for Director 5.0. Macromedia has also released a beta Shockwave plug-in for FreeHand, which allows viewing and manipulation of scalable vector graphics. As with previous releases, Shockwave plug-ins want plenty of memory, and reports on stability remain mixed. [GD]
