Did you know that the ‘Recent Files’ menu in Photoshop can show more than (the default) 10 files? You can change this number in Preferences > File Handling. Here’s another tip: The tiny star (*) at the end of a document tab indicates that you have unsaved changes in that file. The forward arrow (▸) in the status bar at the bottom of every document provides a host of information like document size, color profile, dimensions, and more.
Sometimes we get so used to our style of working in an interface that we tend to overlook the tiny, handy features that could make our life easier.
