SharePoint recently used docs list

Using SharePoint 2010 MySite, I want to add a web part that gives me a list of recently opened/accessed documents. It should also allow customization of the list (# of items, etc.) In Sharepoitn 2007, this seemed to be a default piece (though I am not sure). I will provide additional info when requested.

Hi!
By default SharePoint does not track who and when opened documents or items at all (it tracks only creation and modification).  How SharePoint has functionality (and I guess it is only for Server not for Foundation) to do that - it is called audit log: http://www.sharepointedutech.com/2011/02/14/setting-up-audit-logging-in-sharepoint-2010/.
However, I guess there are no controls or webparts that allows you to see recently opened documents, even if audit logging is enabled, so I guess to have to develop your own webpart for that.

The only thing I can suggest aside from custom dev is the Relevant Document webpart. This can give a summary of recently modified documents, or documents you have a relationship to (as you created it, modified it or have it checked out).
