    Remove links to "my Recent Documents"

    Can someone tell me how to remove any links to "My Recent Documents"? Ie, remove any signs of it even from when you click on File > Open.

    Thanks

    Tim

    depending on which start menu you use

    Right click on start, click properties, click customize, then theres a clear button in there

    If you mean from Explorer windows (as shown) the free Powertool TweakUI lets you set custom places (Common Dialogues - Places Bar) - assuming you're using XP. Yet to find something as useful/free as that for Vista.

    Can't you configure one profile and copy it to "default user"?

    There are three policies:

    User Config > Admin Templates > Start Menu and Taskbar

    Remove Documents from menu from Start Menu - Enabled

    Do not keep history of recently opened documents - Enabled

    Clear history of recently opened documents on exit - Enabled

    This should do the trick

    In Office, by default it shows the last four documents you worked on. If want to tweak policies to do with Office, you need to download Ork Tools.
