Tech Tips




Are you someone that works on large documents over a period of time? Maybe, you use the same document repeatedly. Either way, here's a trick to access the last document you worked on, quickly, from your desktop.

  1. Right click on your desktop, go to New and choose Shortcut (For Word 2003 point to c:\program files\microsoft office\office11\winword.exe.)
  2. After the location press the space bar and type /mFile1.
  3. Click Next and change the name of the shortcut to 'Last Word Document'.
  4. Click Finish.

You will now have a shortcut on your desktop that will open up the last opened document you worked on in Word.

The same will apply to Excel if you prefer. Instead of choosing winword.exe, choose excel.exe. You may even want both: just be sure to re-label the shortcut properly.

Tricks of the trade!
