You might think there are already many ways in which you can do this, but none of them are faster than RecentX. RecentX runs in the background on your system tray and it adds four tabs that give you direct access to the elements which you can find and access using the program.
Every time you want to find a document or open a folder which you’ve used a few minutes ago, all you'll have to do is click on the right icon to see a list of recent elements. If you prefer, you can also bring up the RecentX client onto the desktop by pressing Ctrl Caps Lock 1 on your keyboard.
Windows 2000, XP, and Windows Vista.
