    From the brevity of the replies, I take it that it's somewhere obvious which
    I've missed. Well, the fact that I'm asking means that I have missed
    it......

    It is normally in the right column of the start menu. (left click the Start
    Orb), On my setup it is the 6th item down under Favorites and above
    Computer.

    If it is not there configure the start menu.

    Right Click the Start Orb, left click properties in the drop down box.
    Left click the Start Menu tab

    Left Click the Customize Button
    About two thirds down the list you should find 'Recent Items' left click to
    set the check mark in the box next to 'Recent Items'.
    Left click the OK button in lower right.
    Left click the OK button in lower middle.

    Recent Items should now show in the right column of the start menu when you
    next left click the start orb

    Thanks Dave and Michael......I've done that. I don't know why it isn't set
    by default.
