I can’t see the list of Recent Documents in Word or Excel and seraching for them at storage locations is cumbersome. When I go to Word Options- Advanced--Display--Show the number of recent documents is faded out and when I roll a mouse button at Stop sign “This command is currently Disabled Press F1 for help” message is prompted. When I press F1 under the heading Causes I find “Your Administrator has disabled this command through group policy” as the cause of this. I am the sole user of the laptop and no one has ever accessed it. I believe the problem has arisen after I once used a popped up software “Clear All History” as I thought a lot of History pile up was slowing my computer and I did not know how to get rid of it. From the Start menu also when I pick “My Recent Documents” it shows “Empty” . By Right clicking Start Menu--Properties--Customize--Advanced- Check Box for List My most recently opened documents is checked.
