I am currently using Quickbooks for Mac 2019. When I want to switch company files, I used to be able to go to file/open recent and find my companies listed there. They no longer show up there and I need help figuring out how to get them back there.
On a side note, they also used to show up when I right clicked the QB icon in my dock but they don't show up there anymore either.
Jen_D's advice will restore them (though on the Mac you should search in Spotlight for .qb2019 if you are using QuickBooks Mac 2019 instead of the .qbw and so on). The Open Recent menu is a macOS thing. You can clear it going to the Apple Menu->Recent Items->Clear Recents. Perhaps that's what happened that cleared them.
Thank you Jen_D. I know where all my files are. I haven't lost them. :)
I just can't get them to show up on my "Open Recent" which IntuitBrooks answer below you said was a Mac OS thing. I haven't cleared them on purpose (which you can do) but they also aren't repopulating there as I open and close them.
