One of the nicest things about GoldMine version 8 and up is the "Most Recently Viewed" window that appears alongside the left edge of the program window. Unfortunately, by default, this only tracks the last 5 or 10 (depending on your version). We can increase this value by;
1. Select Tools | Options from the top level menu in GoldMine.
2. Select the "System: tab.
3. Change the "Recent Items Shown" value to 99 (this is the maximum).
4. Ok your way out.
Now, as you navigate to contact records, GoldMine will add them to the Recently Viewed list until the number reaches 99. At that point, GoldMine will start to re-use the list from the top.
