Re: clear recent documents in excel

To delete the most recently used files list in Microsoft Office XP or in Microsoft Office 2003, follow these steps:

1. Start the program that you want to modify.
2. On the Tools menu, click Options.
3. On the General tab, click to clear the Recently used file list check box, and then click OK.

To delete the most recently used files list in the 2007 Microsoft Office suites, follow these steps:

1. Start the program that you want to modify.
2. Click the Microsoft Office Button, and then click Program Name Options.

Note Program Name is the name of the program that you want to modify.
3. Click Advanced.
4. In the Display area, click to select the number of files in the Show this number of Recent Documents list.
5. Type the number of files that you want to display, and then click OK.
If you do not want to display any files, type 0.

To modify the registry key and to clear the most recently used files list in a program in Office, follow these steps.

Re: clear recent documents in excel

1. Click Start, click Run, type regedit in the Open box, and then click OK.
2. Locate the following registry key, as appropriate for your version of Office:
2007 Office suite
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\12.0\Common\Open Find
Office 2003
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\11.0\Common\Open Find
Office XP
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\10.0\Common\Open Find
3. In the Open Find subkey, locate the program for which you want to clear the most recently used files list.

In each program subkey, you find another subkey that is named Settings. In that subkey, you find several additional subkeys. Each of these subkeys contains a most recently used files list.

For example, the Microsoft Office Word\Settings subkey contains subkeys such as Insert File, Save As, Open, or Modify Location. These keys may vary depending on the past actions that were performed in Microsoft Word.

Under each subkey is another subkey that is named File Name MRU.
4. To delete a specific list of most recently used files, delete the Value entry in any File Name MRU subkey.
