    Default Which is the best way to open a doucment?

    Windows explorer? windows "recent document"? "Recent Files" among File Menu? Myrecentlist? anything else?

    Windows Explorer:
    Windows Explorer is the most popular way to open a document, for you can 100% find the target file by using it! but waste lots of your time.

    windows "recent document":
    Few user like window "recent document" among "start" menu, the reason:
    1.There is Only file name on the menu item, no other(such as path) info,this make the user can not decide the file is his wanted not or not.
    So many file called same name(such as index.html),or sometimes the path info can help user to know the file.
    obviously "recent document" never think about these clearly.

    2.Short of file quantity.
    There are usually 10 files or more in "recent document" menu. A lot of user's file not in it.

    All above make "recent document" can not accepted by users.

    1.MyRecentList's use path+file name as menu item, then user can know whether the file is his want or not unambiguous.
    2.There are more files in MyRecentList than other,improve the shoot rate
    3.MyRecentList put the files into different applications,such as word file,excel file and so on,provide a big convenience to user.
    4.Special feature provided by MyRecentList is using times sort order. By using this, user can find frequency using document easily.

    All these make myrecentlist bacome a excellent document launch tool.
