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.)

 
 

Poll Results: A People Divided

Send Article to a Friend

Poll Results: A People Divided -- In our poll last week we asked people to describe how they divide their time between Macs and PCs - if they divide their time at all. Of over 1,800 respondents, fully 50 percent indicated they mainly use Macs, but also use PCs, while a little over a third (36 percent) indicate they only use Macs. Of the remaining respondents, 13 percent indicated they use mainly PCs but also use Macs, and 2 percent indicate they only use PCs. We heard from a few of the PC-only readers, some of whom subscribe to TidBITS to keep an eye on Macintosh-related news for co-workers or colleagues or because they're former Mac users who hope to rejoin the fold. Nonetheless, it's revealing that almost two thirds of the poll's respondents indicate they use PCs to some degree, while only a little over one third use Macs exclusively. It's a cross-platform world, after all. [GD]
