Recent command ?


Recommended Posts


Can anyone give me an explenation of the recent command.



type 'recent'


It is pretty straight forward and is not a command as such, I think. But could someone explain what it is to me.

Yes, as stated, it will open the 'special folder', %userprofile%\My Recent Documents. My guess is that the clue is in the fact it is a 'special folder'.

You can also simply type my documents without needing quotes to get %userprofile%\My Documents, or favorites to get %userprofile%\Favorites and temp to get %windir%\Temp for example.
