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.)

Macworld Expo Pocket Show Guide Returns

Send Article to a Friend

Macworld Expo Pocket Show Guide Returns -- After an involuntary and unfortunate modification for last year's Macworld Expo NY, the free Macworld Expo Pocket Show Guide from Palmtop Publishing has returned in full, complete with exhibitor listings, booth locations, and a floor map. There's also a schedule of events and show and conference hours, organized by day and track. If you're attending Macworld Expo in San Francisco and have a Palm OS handheld, I strongly encourage you to get this tiny utility (it's a 32K download and takes up only 67K on your handheld). [ACE]
