Running Windows (5,6,7), I have always pinned Mathematica to the Start Bar. This feature offers the Recent files for a quick load. However, the list of files has never been up-to-date, i.e., I can never access my most recently opened Mathematica files.
I would agree that it is not very important, but then again it is a quite helpful feature. How do I get the entries to be up-to-date?
