When I open the software and try select "open", I have to type in the name of the drawing and path on the command line, it won't allow me to browse for the drawing or show recently used drawings. I can work around this by typing in the path and name, but it is inconvenient. Is there a setting that I need to change?

FILEDIA=1 I think (IIRC)?
Do you not have a command line? It may be you have turned it off but you should still be able to type commands. Press escape several times to cancel any active commands and then type FILEDIA and hit enter. Normally you would then see a prompt on the command line for inputting a value. If you can't see the command line just type the number one after hitting enter and you should then start getting the dialogues when opening files.
If you press Ctrl+9 it should restore your command line.

Since Autocad needs a path to open/save files, that means the command line is visible somewhere...
I concur with CTRL-9 or, even quicker, by pressing F2 to trigger the biggest text window.
