Unhappy Finding PowerPoint Recent File list without PowerPoint Avaialble

I need to find my last PP project without having PP to look in.





Last Thursday, my computer crashed. I have a backup of the files but right now, my work laptop still is dead. I worked on a project on PP in December, 2021, and, I think, in January, 2022. I need to find the PP file. I did a search in File Explorer for pptx and ppt files. I didn't see what I wanted. I asked File Explorer to search for files modified this month or last month. I still didn't see what I am looking for. Is there any place in my hard drive backup where I can find PowerPoint's list of recent files without having PowerPoint available? Since I can look at the backup on my own network folder but don't have PowerPoint to see it there, I'd really like to figure out where the file went to. I'm sure I saved it multiple times.

You might try a good search program. You can find 'Everything' from void tools. It's free and will allow you to search for documents with .pptx modified in a given date range if you choose advanced search
