Recent Documents and Open Documents

The SOLIDWORKS software maintains lists of documents that you have opened recently and of documents that are currently open. These documents are available on menus and in document browsers.

The SOLIDWORKS software can store up to 100 recent documents. You can specify the maximum number of recent documents from 1 to 100 in System Options. The default number is 50.

You can remove some or all recent items by clicking Remove in the Recent > Documents or Recent > Folders tabs in the Welcome dialog box.
