Doesn't the PARANOIA tab in TWEAKUI help with this?
In closing, I'm unsure if Microsoft gave us such fine control. Maybe you can just turn off the Recent Douments in the Start Menu?
Does anyone know how to stop XP from saving "My Recent Documents" history, while preserving recently accessed files in Office programs (Word, Excel) ?
If I turn off the option to save document history in My Recent Docs, when I go into Word/Excel's File menu, my list of recently opened files has been erased as well.
However, if I clear My Recent Documents manually, (via the start menu), when I go into Word/Exel, my recent Office files are still there.
So surely there is a difference in how "My Recent Documents" and My Recent OFFICE Documents" are handled -- question is, how to turn off the former, without affecting the latter?
This has been bugging me for months, any advice is superbly appreciated!
