In Office 2007, the Recent files list was displayed with only the file name but no Excel icon or directory/pathway.
However, in Office 2010, the icon and directory/pathway are both included. As a result, far fewer recent files can be displayed since each file takes up much more space vertically. My estimate is that three filenames in Office 2007 could be displayed in the same vertical space only one is displayed in Office 2010.
Is there any way to modify the way the Recent file list is displayed so that it has the same appearance (showing only the file name) as it did in Office 2007?
