Instead of drop down list when pressing down arrow near Open... the list should be visible in a sidebar - there is plenty of gray area surrounding the white rectangle.
Sometimes pressing the down arrow reacts as if Open... was pressed.

I like the general idea.  We're making better use of the widescreen horizontal space in other parts of the product.  We should do so on the start screen as well.

no objections -> confirmed

Good idea. But we might need an additional "Recent Documents"" list additionally to the limited one from File menu.
