AutoCAD: How to keep a file in your “Recent File List”

June 25, 2021 Jeff Arbogast


You have a file you use often however it drops off the “Recent File List” before you can use it again. How can you keep this file on the list?


These “Recent File List’s” are maintained until you reach a maximum number and then start dropping off the list.


How to keep a file on the “Recent File List”

  • There is a small icon that looks like a Thumb Tack.  

  • Select this Icon.
  • The Icon will change to look as though it was “Pinned”.
  • This File should stay on the list until it is “Unpinned”.

This can also be done in the Start Tab.
