"By default, OpenOffice.org lists the last ten documents you
have opened in the sub-menu File -> Recent Documents. This
arrangement is fine, so far as it goes, and an improvement over the
distant days when only three recent documents were displayed. But
History Master goes further, adding all the enhancements that
people regularly ask for on the mailing lists and then some.
"History Master adds two items to the menus. The first is File
-> Recent documents of the same type. This item opens the
History Master Window to allow you to filter the list so it only
shows documents of one type -- for example, word processing
documents, or spreadsheets. When you have a long list of recent
documents, this list can greatly simplify locating a document.
"The second menu addition is Tools -> Add-Ons -> History
Master - List handling, which opens the extension's main window.
From here, you can do such frequently requested actions such as set
the length of your recent document list from 0-100, and either
clear or selectively delete the list. You can also move items up or
down in the list (which can be handy if you want to keep a
frequently used item on the list) or remove any documents from the
list that are no longer accessible because they have been moved or
deleted. In addition, you can switch between the default picklist
and URLS if you are working with HTML documents."
