Pushpin Use in Recent Documents List

In Office 2003, this feature was listed as the Work Menu. It no longer appears in Office 2007, as the feature is integrated into the Office button functions. The list of Recent Documents will list all the files you are working on. The push button will allow you to keep these files active. Think of pinning documents on a bulletin board they will remain until you decide to remove them.

As you click the Office Button, the following table displays

The most Recent Documents will appear on the right hand; notice the pushpins or Pin Icons located on the far right

To keep the documents on the list create a Favorites List by clicking the pushpin to the right of the file name. The documents will remain on the list. This is a great feature if you are working with the same documents.

Placement of pinned documents

Newly created documents will appear at the top and the numbers will be updated. The pinned documents will move down the list. Once they reach the bottom of the list, they will remain. One great feature, the pinned documents will be grouped together at the bottom of the list.

Click to unpin the documents
