"open recent file" is stuck on old files.
recent files reverts back to the same old files every time I open illustrator.

Two projects from late last year keep showing up as 'recent', and they show up 10 - 12 times each. What didn't work: I reset the number of recent files in preferences to '0' and restarted Illustrator, then reset that number to 30 again.
Have the similar issue with Recent Files list on the Welcome page. The list is not updated until restart of the application. E.g. you can create some new files and save them but they do not appear in the recent files welcome page. But they do appear if you restart the application.
Thanks for your support!
"Recent" view doesn't show recent files. (The feature does not work).
It doesn't show the most recently opened file.
When a file is clicked, the WRONG file opens. The thumbnail images and filenames don't match the files that AI opens when I click them.
