If you’re working on a long document in Word, you’ll probably be opening it often until it’s completed. Rather than opening Word to the general start screen, and then opening the file, you can automatically open the last document you were working on.

I work with Excel more than with Word. Is there such a shortcut to the last Excel file accessed? I did a search but could not find anything that worked.

RUN - winword /mfile1 also works!!
Thanks for this cool shortcut

@jsrijith Isn't that pretty much the same thing?
Fun fact: /mfile2 shows the second last document opened.

+1 on this one for Excel. I have searched for this also but haven't found anything.

I just right click on Word's (2010) icon on on the taskbar for a list of the most recent documents. Easy peasy.
