Opening a Project


Like the other Office System applications, Project's Open dialog allows you to not only open your project files, but also to search for files using the Office search features. The Open dialog also provides you with shortcuts to your most commonly used files. This section shows you how to open project files, how to search for documents, and how to customize the shortcuts for this dialog.
