Windows Vista: Clearing Recent Items Menu

Under the Start Menu there is a sub-menu called 'Recent Items' that contains a list of documents that you recently opened. This is a useful feature to quickly access documents that you may often use.

Although some people view this feature as a privacy risk, because they may not want others to know about documents that they may be working on. To clear the 'Recent Items' menu on your computer, follow the steps below:
  • Open the Start menu, right-click 'Recent Items'.
  • Then select 'Clear Recent Items List'.
Anything listed under the 'Recent Items' should now be removed.
