Tech Tips

I’ve been running Win 7 Ultimate on my Toshiba NetBook 205 for more than a few years. One of the things that has annoyed me about Windows 7 is the removal of the “Recent Items” folder in “Favorites”

Here’s four easy steps to return that folder to it’s rightful place!

1. Open Windows Explorer and navigate to:
C:\Users\your name\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Recent

(Note: AppData is a hidden folder. If it is not visible, go into Folder and Search Options/View tab and select the ‘Show hidden files, folders, and drives option.)

2. In the Navigation pane, right click Favorites and select the Add current location to Favorites option.

3. Select the Recent folder in the Favorites links.

4. Make sure the files are in the Details View. Hover the cursor over the Date Modified column header and click the Arrow to expand the options.
