Recent Documents & Recent Places

The Recent Documents & Recent Places panel appears in Word 2010, Excel 2010, and PowerPoint 2010. There are a few things you can do to customize the Recent Documents & Recent Places panel. You can:
Pin locations (always keep these locations in the list)
Unpin locations
Selectively remove locations
Clear all unpinned locations

To Get Started

Click the File tab
Click the Recent option:

To Pin a Location to the List

Click the Pin button next to location name

To Unpin a Location from the List

Click the Pin button next to location name

To Selectively Remove a Location

Right-click the location you want to remove

Select Remove from list (This option is available even if the location is pinned to the list)

To Clear All Unpinned Locations

Right-click any location on the Recent Places list

Select Clear unpinned Places (If you want to remove all the locations in the list, make sure none of the locations are pinned.)

Click Yes This will clear all the unpinned locations from your Recent Places list.
You can use the same techniques to customize the Recent Documents, Recent Workbooks, and Recent Presentations lists in Word, Excel, and PowerPoint.
