Checking the last accessed files on Windows 10 in C++

I'm writing a small tool to help my workflow as an artist, and it'd be neat if it could check a list of recently accessed files on my computer for a *.psd (photoshop) file. The last file of this type is always the one I'd like to read, so it works out well.

Does Windows 10 allow me to see a list of paths to my computer's most recently accessed files, which I might leverage through C++?

(I'd never ask for this kind of feature as a dev, it seems like a huge privacy issue when the dev and user are not the same person... But if it's there I may as well use it.)
