Related to this vein, but separate:

I'd still like to find a way to have user-selected Mathematica notebooks 
be immediately accessible (that is, Open-able) from the Mathematica 
Front End menu ­­ in other words a "File >> Open Recent..." extension or 
work-alike that would provide immediate access to user-added notebooks 
or notebook aliases ("favorites") that were placed in an appropriate 
library folder somewhere.

[Is there maybe a user-accessible folder somewhere that holds the "File 
>> Open Recent..." aliases -- I assume they're aliases -- or a Prefs 
setting for how long these aliases last before they decay away?]
