I ask myself that question a lot, especially since I typically save my workbooks to SharePoint team sites on our corporate servers. If you, too, save and share files on your network, you can make your life easier by adding the Document Location box to the Quick Access Toolbar.
The Document Location box shows you exactly where your file is saved. If you need your coworkers to review or edit your workbook, just paste the link from this box into an email message and send it to them. Trust me—sending a link is way better than sending a file attachment!
Here's how to add this box to the ribbon:
This procedure applies to Excel 2010, but it works pretty much the same way in Excel 2007. To quickly open the Excel Options dialog box in Excel 2010 or earlier, press ALT, and then press T, O.

Its a very useful tip, but I'd be a little hesitant to seeing a somewhat large textbox eating away precious screenspace (then again; its not /that/ big but still...).
Personally I've became a big fan of having the "Open recent file" option in my quick access bars (use it on Word, Excel and Powerpoint). Naturally because Office 2010 shows you an (IMO) excellent overview list of recently opened files, which can go back quite a bit!
Just edit the quick launchbar like described, but instead of "commands not in the ribbon" look in the "popular commands" section.
Hi ShelLuser. I like your suggestion about adding the Open Recent File button to the Quick Access Toolbar. Thank you! You may already know this, but if you want more screen space while you work, you can press CTRL+F1 to temporarily hide the ribbon. (Press CTRL+F1 again to get it back.) Note that this won't hide the Quick Access Toolbar.
Question for everyone else: I'm curious -- what kinds of customizations have you made to your Quick Access Toolbar?
