You know, I had done that, then I clicked on the rescan catalog button and it had the same number of items as before.  And when I tried to use something in the recents, nothing came up.  That's when I posted here.

Then after getting your response, I went back to settings and the number of items had jumped up.  So I tried it again.  And it worked.  I guess there was a delay after I clicked the rescan items button.
