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.)

We plan to test our ListSTAR-based mailing list for TidBITS in the next week (and we'll be sending the next DealBITS issue out a few days early for testing purposes), so don't worry (and please don't respond) if you get a test message from us. Also, although the new subscription address at <tidbits-on@tidbits.com> is now functional, please don't use it if you're already on the current list that we're moving from LISTSERV to ListSTAR. We will try to eliminate duplicates, but the fewer the better. [ACE]
