Recently Opened Files and Docs




FILE PATH for RECENT DOCS:

C:\Users\%UserName%\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Recent

or at file explorer title bar (paste this): %AppData%\Microsoft\Windows\Recent

Opens a folder of shortcut files of recently opened files.


Including png,txt,pdfs, docx, and recent folders.
Right click on top column to add column


Can view date modified and date created








This location is present on Windows 7 up to Windows 10.
And for Windows XP it is at "\Documents and Settings\$USER$\Recent".


A possible place to check for forensic artifacts or for that document that you had open recently and were looking for.
