In the Startup Pane and in the "File" menu, Microsoft Excel 2003 remembers the names of the last four files opened. This way, if you frequently view the same files, you won't have to remember where the files are located on your hard drive nor the filenames themselves.
For people that work with many spreadsheets, however, four files is not enough. The following tip will let Excel 2003 remember the last nine filenames.
1. Click "Tools" - "Options".
2. When the "Options" multi-tabbed dialog box appears, click the "General" tab.
3. Next to "Recently used file list" enter "9".
4. Click "OK" to close the dialog box.
Press the "print" button on your browser or select "File" - "Print" to print this tip. Then, return to Microsoft Excel 2003 File Management and Recovery - Remember More Files.
