How to quickly access the latest documents created in Windows 10

The arrival of Windows 10 has meant a very important change in the graphical interface that both Windows 7 and the hated Windows 8 offered us, since some elements of the interface have disappeared completely, forcing the user to have to take a few extra steps to perform the same functions that he was performing up to now.

Without going any further, in previous versions, Windows allowed us through the Start menu to access the latest documents that we had created or modified, something that unfortunately is no longer available with Windows 10. But Not everything is lost, since in Windows News we are going to offer you an alternative that will save us a few clicks.

Currently if we want to access the last presentation that we have created with Powerpoint to modify it, or if we want to try again to modify that image that resists us with Photoshop, we have to look for the application, run it and later locate where the file is located. Fortunately, thanks to Cortana's search box, we can solve this waste of time quickly and easily.

For this we just have to type in the Cortana search box, the name of the application with which we have created the document. Obviously the first result will be the name of the application but just below the last three documents that we have edited with it will appear.

Keep in mind that the application saves a direct access to the last three files that we have created or modified. If we change the path where the file is stored or we delete it, it will be impossible to use this little trick to be able to open it again, which will force us to perform the step again from scratch, that is, open the application and search for the file.
