my problem is, when u click "open" in a program like notepad or word, you can click "recent" on the left and all the recent documents opened are there.

we are posting so quick we are missing each other. I that tweak ui just remove the folders. I don't think it disables it. the folder in
C:\Documents and Settings\Username\Recent Documents
is still there

I have customizer xp an earlier version of the tweak ui program

you missed the 2 pictures that I just posted on my last posts.
the first time I open my recent documents for this post, I had over 60 items there. hitting clear list got rid of them.

I was using notepad

you missing my point. everytime u open up documents, it saves a history of those opened documents. u can clear them all up like you said but when u open up documents again, it'll keep a history those opened documents again.

I know that. he would have to occassinally keep hitting clear list to clear them since he don't want to use evidence eliminator, which destroys the whole darn recent documents process. or you can use that version of xp that I was talking to warez about
