    How to re-establish recent files after installing new version?

    David Whitney

      I had/have Tableau Desktop 2018.1.4 (20181.18.0807.1415) installed, have been using for a while, and have recent and pinned workbooks showing in the welcome screen.  I installed 2018.2.0 (20182.18.0627.2230) from scratch by downloading from the web site, not via 2018.1.4 prompting me to upgrade.  My 2018.2.0 welcome screen is devoid of recent/pinned files.  Is there any way to get these copied from the old version?  I've been using Tableau for years, and I noticed that this happens every time a new install is used instead of an upgrade and it's a pain to manually reload my recent/pinned files.
