    Go ahead and open up the Registry Editor by typing “regedit” (no quotes) in your Start menu search box and pressing enter. Find the following registry key: HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer. Double-click on the value inside the key labeled “NoRecentDocsHistory”. Change the 1 to 0.

    Now that you’ve edited this value, you should be able to view recent documents in Office programs and Windows itself.
