I thought this was a simple thing; I used to be able to do it. Anyway, in Winders XP how do you clear Recent Documents from the START menu. Actually, I'd prefer they don't ever even show up there. In many years of computing, I've never used that route to return to a file. Don't need it. It's just a security liability as far as I'm concerned. I have financial records and things that I don't have in passworded folders but are deeply hidden. Doesn't matter how cleverly I put things in layers of folders, all someone has to do if I leave my machine logged in is to just go to Recent Documents! Help. Thanks.
