files/documents search

Hello, I am wondering how to clear the dropdown list in the files/documents etc. search. Seems that you cannot delete a search heading just by hitting the delete key. Tried looking for a menu option withing Win 2000 NT, but have not found it. Can anyone help?

Thanks

You can clear it or any part of it...

by running your REGEDIT and navigating to this key:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\RunMRU

To delete all simple select them in the right window and delete (Do NOT delete the (Default) name or value)

To delete only specific ones select them and note what letter they have. Re-letter the Names and the value of MRUlist so there are no gaps.

Gave you the wrong key, here is the correct one...

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Doc Find Spec MRU
