Basically, it just keeps X number of items listed, and they're bumped based on the last date of use.

Your only other option is to set it to delete them every bootup.

Is it safe to delete items out of Recently Folder via pgm?

Is it safe to delete items out of Recently Folder programatically?
Or does it require fiddling with the Registry?
Thanks!
