Having your 25 most recently used documents on the File tab, in the Open menu, is handy, but you may find it's not enough. You can increase the number shown up to 50, and you can pin (fasten) particular documents to the menu so that they remain there even if you haven't used them recently.

Because of this, these field results may be difficult to distinguish from standard text, so Word has added a feature called shading that helps you to locate such results.
