  • Microsoft Word 97 Standard Edition

This article was previously published under Q173053


When you open or save a file in Microsoft Word 97 through either file transfer protocol (FTP) or hypertext transfer protocol (HTTP) on the Internet, the shortcut to the file will not be listed in the Recent folder within the Microsoft Windows folder.


To work around this problem, open or save a file in Microsoft Word 97 through either FTP or HTTP and save the file to the hard disk. This will force a shortcut to appear in the Windows\Recent folder.


Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in the Microsoft products listed at the beginning of this article. We are researching this problem and will post new information here in the Microsoft Knowledge Base as it becomes available.


For additional information about the Recent folder, please see the following article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:
