I'm replacing the computer for one of my managers, old computer is Windows XP running Office 2010 and the new one is Windows 7 Pro running Office 2010. She is wondering where her recently used workbooks and places are on the new computer. And this made me wonder, isn't this just a list of shortcuts somewhere and shouldn't I be able to copy them from one computer to the other?
But I'm not sure where to look for this list, if it exists, or where I'd put them on the new computer. Any suggestions?
Thanks in advance,

For Windows Vista/7/8, it can be found here:

File locations are probably not the same under Windows 7 so there is little point in transferring recently used files...
Anyway, it won't take long to build the list anew.

I appreciate the responses and Darien's response gave me half the equation, I guess I needed to phrase the question a bit differently. I still needed to find the location of the shortcuts on the Windows XP system, which I thought I located but now can't find again.
The reason I asked was because she didn't want to have to go through the hastle of locating and pinning all of her favorite documents and locations. Additionally, this is the beginning of a company wide effort to replace our aging Windows XP computers with new Windows 7. If I could copy over these lists it would help make the transition that much smoother and probably save the company some time as well as frustration for my users. A surprising number of my users don't like getting new computers because of the disruption to their routine.
With that in mind, Hans' response didn't really address my question at all so I felt I should not leave it marked as an answer.
It is still a little unclear to me whether or not I can simply copy the shortcuts from the XP system to the Windows 7 system without disrupting anything on the Windows 7 computer. I would test it to see what happens if I could locate all the required resources on the Windows XP computer.

The Windows XP list of recently opened documents (the one you can access from the Start menu) can be found in
C:\Documents and Settings\<username>\Recent
(In fact, the Recent Documents submenu only lists the last 15 of these, or so)
Each Office application keeps its own list of recently opened documents and folders in the Windows registry.
For example, for Excel 2010:
and similar for the other Office applications. The items contain info about whether they're pinned or not.
