OK, and thank you Stephan. To be clearer about #4 below. A file does not need to be re-opened to populate the list I require. For the list has already been populated by the most recent files that were opened. And those — the most recently opened — are the files I require.
PS: I’ve gotten what I require by also accessing the “Open Recent” list on my prior computer.
