    This week's tip and trick is about opening tables from the "Most Recent Used" list in the "Open" dropdown.

    The "Most Recent Used" list gives you quick access to the files you have used recently and lets you open these quickly.

    There are however a few small tips on how you can benefit better from these. In the image below, you can see the tips highlighted when you hold your mouse over a table in the list.

    You can use the four small buttons to control how to open the table into MapInfo Pro: into a browser window, into the current map window, into a new map window, or open it without showing it in any windows.

    You can combine some of these with a keyboard shortcut: Shift to open the table into a floating window and Ctrl to open the table into a docked window. These only work if you click on the browser or into a new map window buttons mentioned above.

    Are you already using this option in MapInfo Pro? Feel free to comment on this tip using the comments below.

    #MapInfoMonday is your weekly little tip​ to help you get more from your MapInfo Pro.
