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

Bite the Purple Bullet and buy yourself a bigger PowerBook drive. Along with the cases that various hard drive vendors sell, you can now buy a $99 NuBus card from ETC Peripherals that will accept your 2.5" hard drive (or a 3.5" low-power drive if you buy an optional Purple Bullet Expander). The Purple Bullet provides a selectable SCSI address switch, an LED activity light, ETC Disk Tools 4.0, and all the necessary cables.
