Recent Document Tracker Publisher's description
from Tom Wilkason
Implements an improved function to Windows 7 Jumplists by tracking recent documents and folders
Implements an improved function to Windows 7 Jumplists by tracking recent documents and folders, then by using document type icons in the taskbar tray you can pop-up a menu of recent documents sorted by last access time (like Jumplists). Selecting a menu choice will launch the appropriate program on the file. You can also launch a dialog with the right mouse button to search for and identify files to filter and or pin to the menus. The searchable dialog is very fast and allows sorting the matches by usage count, modification time or access time.
Windows vista and before had a Recent Documents feature, however I never found it that useful as is. RDT monitors the shortcuts created by the Recent Document feature and puts it to much better use.
If you are someone who likes to clear their recent documents regularly, then this app is probably not for you. However if you are someone that works with dozens of different office files daily and has a hard time remembering where they are and what you worked on last week then this app is perfect.
Currently works with MS Word, Excel, Project, Powerpoint, Access, Publisher, Adobe Acrobat and general folders. To use it just run the program and icons for the above applications will appear in the system tray. The first time it is used may take a few seconds to scan and verify the recent document shortcuts. Subsequent runs will be much faster. Left mouse button will pop-up a history of each type separated by those in the last day, week and month. Selecting one will launch the document/folder. Also a Search Dialog entry to bring up a filterable window to locate all recently used files. Right mouse button to adjust options such as hiding certain types (must restart), resetting database, setting limits to how many are shown and removing dead shortcuts when document no longer exists.
System Requirements:No special requirements.
