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 :/

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Photoshop CC 2015 Recent File listing not working or updating.

Adobe Photoshop CC 2015 2015.1.1 20151209.r.327 2015/12/09:23:59:59 CL 1055659

Recent file listing feature is not working since the update.

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

This should be solved in the 2015.1.2 update released today:

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.

Wish i could update Photoshop to 1.2 or something,but..."Failure in the update", "Try again" aaand still..

Usually that means that required files have been moved or deleted.
Uninstalling and reinstalling usually solve it.

With ver 2015.1.1 it happened to me, but the solution Trevor Morris sent worked and solved the problem.

Oddly enough, it also solved another problem. When I dragged a file from Explorer to the Photoshop window in order to open it as I did in previous versions, it didn't work. But clearing the recent files also solved that issue!
