Same topic here
Maybe this can be merged?

'Clear recent files' solves the problem for a while, but after a few days it stops adding the most recent files again...

It happens with Windows 7 OS too so it's not just a Mac problem.

Having the same problem. Both recent list in the File menu and the new Start screen doesnt show the recent files properly.

My list of recent files, both only the file menu, and on the new homescreen, show only files that I opened weeks ago.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Photoshop: Last used files not actual.

In my photoshop cc 2015.1.1 the last used files on the new start page are not actual. It seems that the list contains only files from the day when the update 2015.1 was installed.

It doesn' t matter whar I do, the List never changes.

For what it's worth, mine seems to be working after I reset the recent files list.

It's incredible such things are happening with Adobe products. This update just resolved a painful issue on Illustrator were the right click didn't worked for some month. Now this? Seriously thinking to try an alternative software.

Shame on Adobe!!!

Adobe released an update that claims to resolve several issues. I already resolved this by clearing the list, but the update fixed a problem with the liquify tool.

Where do I find that update? I tried clearing it but it started the same issue again. According to my CC program - I don't have any new updates since the last time I did it about a week or so ago.

2015.1.1 solves several serious issues, but not this one.

This is a bug. If there is a limit to the number of recently viewed files, the list should always include the X most recent files. At this point it appears to get filled but new files don't force the others off the list.

I have the same problem but clearing the recent file list does not fix the problem. The next time I open Photoshop CC the same list of old files appears in my recents rather than ACTUAL recent files.

David said they would fix it soon 27 days ago. An update has come out since then and the problem is still not fixed!

Of course, the liquify and filter menu bugs were much more troubling, but how hard can it be to fix the recents?

The update before the holidays was just for the most urgent issues. We are still working on fixes for the less urgent issues.

I really would have thought the UI was the most urgent issue! Maybe Adobe has also not noticed how the Dodge and Burn brushes mostly won't resize using the { and } shortcuts unless another tool (such as Blur) is resized first.

And if that damn new UI isn't fixed in the early New Year I'm canceling my subscription (actually in my wife's name) and going back to CS6 where I least I can work at a normal fast pace instead of looking at every action before clicking. Sorry Seth Shaw but I, and many others obviously, am not a fan of your UI design work...perhaps stick to phone/tablet apps and not pro monitor size software.

With the subscription model, we really can now get new fixes out to our customers much faster than in the past.

Unfortunately, that doesn't mean overnight -- fixes still often take a little while to get out to customers.  Just cuz we've resolved a bug here doesn't mean it's available to customers the next day -- we gotta make sure all fixes are stable and don't have unintended consequences!  Then builds needed to be handed off, packaged up, and put on a server.  As a result, there's often a lag of several weeks between when we fix it and when you actually can get the solution.  During a holiday, that lag might be a little larger as most of the company is shut down.

Said another way, please expect to see the fix for this problem in the next update to Photoshop.  By law, I can't be any more precise about when that will be than "soon."

Thanks,
David

Using PS CS6. Win 10 Pro. Problem happened after upgraded to Win 10 Pro from Win 7 Pro, but don't know if it is related.  When I click on "Clear Recent Files", the opportunity to click on "Open Recent" disappears.  If I then restart PS, the old list comes back.  If I keep PS open new files will go into Recent list.  If I close & reopen PS the old list comes back.  If I change Pref to  0 for history, Recent Files disappears. If I close & reopen PS, I'm back to the 10 old files.  If I set Pref to 30 for history, I then see 30 old files, not the latest ones I had open.  If I close & reopen PS, I'm back to the list of 10 old files!!  When will Adobe fix this??
BTW, if I try to open PS Help Center I get msg, "There was an error launching the default browser.  You may need to re-install the application and the Help component"

If it worked prior to the update, I suspect something off with user permissions.

Thx for your reponse.  User Permissions in Win 10 Pro or in PS CS6?  How do I change the "user permissions" to get back to functionality?

This fix worked for me...
I might have a solution: it appears that clearing the recent list (File > Open Recent > Clear Recent File List) gets things working properly again.

Unfortunately only for 100 files. Then it happens again.

This "clear recent files" is just a workaround. It cannot be considered a reliable fix. This thing is just plain broken :/

Hi Adobe. Why is the label not "in progress"?

Just did the very latest PS CC update (see link in the post above) and the cascading is somewhat better BUT why is it that now opening a bunch of photos together can lead to random image placement like the example attached? They are all the same size images btw.
