Pushpins are a handy office item –even in Microsoft’s world. In Office 2010, you can use” virtual pushpins” to quickly access not only files but also folders you use all the time! The Backstage view (File tab) now offers an expanded Recent Document list. The left side displays the name of the recent file and the right side displays the folder it came from. To view the list, simply click on the File tab and then the Recent button. This list will automatically adjust and move files and folders down the list as more are accessed.
So how do you make the file or folder stay on the list? Just pin it! (Click once on the pushpin located to the right). When the pushpin turns blue, the file or folder displays permanently at the top of the Recent Document list. What an easy way to access the files and folder you use on a daily basis!
