MRU program list
The list of Most Recently Used programs does not seem to work. It lists the
programs but when I select one of the programs - it does not open. Any idea
what might be the problem

Re: MRU program list
Don, you might try right clicking on the MRU program you are trying to open
and, from the drop down menu, click on Properties. Check the 'shortcut' tab
to see if the 'target' box point to the correct file/folder etc. For
example: if you opened WordPad the 'target' box in the wordpad properties
should read "%ProgramFiles%\Windows NT\Accessories\wordpad.exe"

The applications may not be opening correctly because the target folders are
not correct.
