How to Hide My Recent Documents

Some of the last files that we opened will be displayed on My Recent Documents menu. The existence of this menu makes it easier to access those files. But we can also hide the menu if we think it's not useful.

  • Below are some steps to hide My Recent Documents menu:
  • Click Start - Run.
  • Type "regedit".
  • Go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\ Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced
  • On the right window of the Registry Editor, right-click the empty space.
  • Choose New - DWORD Value.
  • Type "Start_ShowRecentDocs" and press Enter.
  • Right-click the new key you've made and choose Modify.
  • On the Value Data type the number "0" to hide My Recent Documents.
  • Press OK.
  • Restart your computer.
