    Open up your favorite registry editor. Navigate to
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer

    Right-click on the right pane and select New, DWORD Value. Name it NoRecentDocsMenu. Double-click and enter 1 as value. To restore the Documents menu, reverse the steps by changing 1 to 0 or delete DWORD value.
