This question was asked before but in Windows 8 I can't find the AutomaticDestinations folder even when setting option to show all hidden files & foleders and hence I am putting it up again.
In windows 8 when you pin Excel 2016 to the start menu, it usually has a small arrow which shows your recently opened documents. Mine doesn't show any files and also doesn't show the small arrow. If I open Excel and click on the file menu, I can see all the recently opened documents so they are being recorded somewhere... Also the shortcut on task bar has the list of recently opened files.
Any idea on how to restore it so I can view them on the start menu - Which I always used before?
