    I have about a dozen Word documents about Foundations. The first word of the document is "foundation" which is followed by a dash and then the specific name of the document. I want to put them all in one folder, which I have created to put them in. When I click on the "open" link that is in the list of links just to the left of where the open documents are displayed, the list of documents that have been saved appear and I just scroll down to find the one I want and click on it and it appears in the bar on the bottom after which I click "Open" if I want to open it. The problems is that when I look down the long list of documents there is no document that starts with "foundation." It doesn't matter if the first letter is capitalized or not. However, when I type the word "foundation" in that bar, the list of documents that start with that word appear just above the bar. I can click on it and open it but I can't do a right click to cut it so I can paste it in the folder and none of them are in the list of all the documents. WHere are they and how can I get them to show up in the list and how can I prevent this from happening? I would have asked Microsoft but I'm 75 and not working and on SS and have less than $100 before my next SS deposit, which will be over 2 weeks from now.
