There's so much more to MS-Word than the trivial issue of opening a file. I'm thinking of Templates and Styles, plus a host of other options.

I find Quick Access to be invaluable because I don't use the standard Windows documents folders, so when I use those dialogue boxes it saves me from having to constantly navigate all the way down from "This PC" through the root folder of my data drive to find the folders I want.

Nobody is seriously going to use the "standard" Windows document folders, and "navigating all the way down" as you suggest would indeed be amateurish.

You keep ignoring the point I'm making about being able to use Quick Access links within File Open and Save As dialogue boxes. Of course I have links on my desktop to access my folders, but to get to those links from a file dialogue box is more work than just going via Quick Access.

I'm not ignoring QA and the limited benefits that are derived, but it just doesn't suit the way that we work in my office.

The OP states...

I will think about the Quick Access technique, but as I am retired, I really only create a handful of documents each year e.g. using powerpoint plus a few word documents.

In this case, My Documents seems like the obvious file location.
