I discovered this yesterday. Remember when I posted that if you click on the > and not the Icon in the start menu that you could choose from the past history and go directly to it .
Well, if you have a program Icon in the Task Bar and Right click on it you can do the same thing. I had drug the Open Office Icon that I use for my main item for keeping up with my stock prices, history, etc. with.
When I Clicked on it, it opened up the Open Office program but did not open the spread sheet that I wanted. It was just ready to start a new one. I right clicked on it to see what it's Properties were and I saw the last several spread sheets that I had opened with that program. Slide your pointer to the one you want to open / run and click on it and you are off and running.
