Quick Access in Windows 10, see recently created files

Quick Access in Windows 10 is a simple and effective feature. It allows you to view and enter the files that you have recently modified. It also helps you identify them by program. This is especially useful when you accidentally save without modifying a file name. Say you misplaced that Excel you’ve been working on. That’s not such a big deal. Just follow these simple steps and you’ll be back in business in no time. Or let’s just say that you forgot where you saved that Photoshop project you’ve been working on. It’s somewhere there, but where? Nu problem, just use Quick Access in Windows 10 and you’ll be able to search by program that created the modifications to the file or the file itself.

First thing you need to make sure of, before using Quick Access in Windows 10, is that your search function is working fine. There shouldn’t be any problems with that but, if you’re having a unexpected failure, you can always fix the search feature. After you do that, just follow these simple steps.

First of all, go and open your search option. Then, write the name of the program that is responsible for the modification of the files you’re searching for. In this instance, I’ve simulated loosing a Word file. So, I’ve typed “Word” in the search bar and this is what happened.

So now, if you forget the name of the file, you can decide to use the Quick Access in Windows 10 and find what you’ve been up to. It’s also a great way to spy on your children or girlfriend (if you’re that kind of guy). Now that you’ve found that file you’ve been searching for, consider backing it up for free, along with the rest of the PC. Just follow these quick, simple steps.
