Disabling Recent Documents History

Written By Unknown on Tuesday, March 11, 2008 | 6:32 AM

Many pplz have ask me hw to clear or disable recent document history. So here is a small little trick for them .

The bad thing about Recent Documents History is that Windows XP has to calculate
what should be put there each time you boot Windows, which can slow things down.

  • Open the Registry Editor (select Start/Run, type regedit, and click OK).
  • Navigate to
  • Create a NoRecentDocsHistory D_WORD key. Double-click the value to open itonce it is created.
  • Set the Data Value to 1 to enable the restriction.
  • Click OK and close the Registry Editor. You'll need to restart the computer for thechange to take effect

U r Done :)
