Recent Items

Recent items are recently opened applications and documents. Mac OS automatically tracks the things you open and creates submenus of the most recently opened items in each category, making it quick and easy to open them again.

To open recent items

To open a recently used item, choose its name from the Recent Items submenu under the Apple menu (Figure 35).

Figure 35. Mac OS tracks the most recently used applications and documents.


Tip

The favorites feature works with aliases, which is discussed earlier in this chapter.


Tip

Working with applications and documents is discussed in Chapter 5.


To clear the Recent Items submenu

Choose Apple > Recent Items > Clear Recent Items (Figure 35).

Tip

Clearing the Recent Items submenu does not delete any application or document files.
