Where is the recent documents folder in windows 7?

What happened to the recent items in Windows 7? Where can I find the Recent Folder in Windows  7?  Where is the recent documents on windows 7

Windows 7 is cool but it does make you frustrating if you are frequent user of the Recent Items list that you find in the Start Menu. I am happy to know that Microsoft has not completely removed that option, but you need to enable that option to be able to see it. This is how you can enable the Recent Items option.

Step 1:
Right Click the Taskbar and click on Properties and click on the Start Menu Tab. You should see the following window.

Step 2:
Click on the Customize Button and you should see the following window.  Scroll down and check the Recent Items.

You are done. You should have the Recent Items now. Enjoy
