Hide your recently opened documents (Windows XP)

This tip has come around as recently someone had to use my work PC to check a task that was running on my PC , however when I got back in the office they were asking about what some of my documents where about, basically snooping.  Although the files were not opened I did not like the fact people were looking. 

 One simple way to switch this off is:


  • Right Click your start menu,
  • Click Properties,
  • If you have Start Menu ticked  as opposed to Classic Start Menu, Click Customize
  • Click the Advanced Tab
  • Untick "List my most recently opened documents"
  • Then Click Clear list, this will clear your current list of files.

I am always interested in feedback so feel free to add any comments, or you can mail me  here, also if you would like to submit a quick tip  with full credit and links back to your site then also feel free to contact me.
