Anyone know a way to get the "open recent" menu to list files I've recently saved, not opened?
As I'm working, I open tons of files I use in the main thing I'm working on, like textures and reference pictures. Sometimes I only just watch at old paintings etc. I don't need these in the open recent list. The files I would like to see in the open recent list are often buried under dozens of unimportant files I never need to open again in my life.

I'm not aware of a way to edit the menu other than "Clear Recent"

You may want to look at setting up "Favorites" in Mini Bridge (Window>Extension>MiniBridge) as a way to access regularly used files.

Thank you, it looks interesting, I'll have to get to know this feature. It doesn't solve the problem though, I'm afraid. I don't have a small list of files I always need to get back to. Of course I could take on a habit to add what ever I'm working on to the mini bridge there so that it would be easily available the next time, but how is that different from me copying all these "favorite" files into a favorites folder on my desktop?
