How can I clean the "recent files" list?

Is there also a way to reduce the list to 0?

There is a settings xml file that you can remove these items from in a text editor

C:\Users[your username]\AppData\Roaming\McNeel\Rhinoceros\7.0\settings\settings-Scheme_Default.xml

The recent files list is near the top of the xml file. Best to make a backup before editing.

Why not this?

Or even a macro:

! _-Options _Files _ClearRecentFilesList _EnterEnd

:slight_smile: Well, there are those better techniques. I blame my reply on not having coffee yet this morning.

None of the above seem to work in the “Recent files” list when you right-click the task bar icon

I’m beginning to think it’s a Windows thing not Rhino’s

Yep, this fixed it…

After turning that setting off there are no more recent files listed
