Use the work menu to group related files.

Q. It would he so nice if, with just a few mouse clicks, I could open a group of files related to a particular work project I frequently use. Other than creating separate folders (subdirectories) for each project, is there a way to open a group of related files?

A. There are several ways. One of the best is a little-known feature of Word called Work. When you click on Work, a customized list of related files appears; click on one and open it.

In all likelihood you don't have Work in your toolbar. To add it click on Tools, Customize and the Commands tab. Under Categories, tab down to Built-in Menus and drag the Work icon to your toolbar.

Now, to create the custom list of related files, open one document and then click on Work and on Add to Work Menu.

Important: Revising the Work Menu once it's created is not intuitive--so save these instructions for deleting a file from it: Press Ctrl+Alt+- (hyphen). Then go to the Work Menu and click on the document you want to remove.
