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

Security Update 2005-009 Released -- Apple has released Security Update 2005-009, preventing a diverse collection of possible exploits in both the desktop and server versions of Mac OS X 10.3.9 and Mac OS X 10.4.3. The most notable changes are to Safari, in which Apple improved handling of credit card security codes, eliminated a bug in the JavaScript engine's PCRE (regular expression) library, ensured that files with overly long names won't be downloaded into unexpected locations, caused JavaScript-generated dialogs to identify the site that created them, and fixed a heap overflow that could enable arbitrary code execution in WebKit-based applications. Other components of Mac OS X seeing fixes include Apache2, apache_mod_ssl, CoreFoundation, CoreTypes, curl, iodbcadmintool, OpenSSL, passwordserver, QuickDraw Manager, ServerMigration, sudo, and syslog. Security Update 2005-009 is available via Software Update and as a standalone download for each version of Mac OS X; sizes range from 6 MB to 33 MB. [ACE]
