Recent Items

Recent items are recently opened applications, documents, and servers. Mac OS automatically tracks the things you open and creates submenus of the ten 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 application, choose its name from the Recent Applications submenu under the Apple menu (Figure 46).

or

To open a recently used document, choose its name from the Recent Document submenu under the Apple menu (Figure 47).

or

To open a recently used server, choose its name from the Recent Servers submenu under the Apple menu (Figure 48).

Tip

The favorites feature works with aliases, which I discuss earlier in this chapter.


Tip

You can change the number of tracked items in the Apple Menu Options control panel, which I tell you about in Chapter 14.


Tip

If your computer is not connected to a network, or you have never connected to a network server, there will be no Recent Servers submenu.


Tip

When you select a server from the Recent Servers submenu, you may be prompted to log on to the server machine by providing a User Name and Password.


Tip

I tell you about applications and documents in Chapter 5 and about servers in Chapter 10.
