I don't know if this is hardware question or software. I work in a library and people use the pc's for creating documents, etc. We can delete the icon documents they save to the desktop but how do you get rid of all those which show up under "recent items" documents. We have to delete them one at a time as there is no way to "select all". ;)

Why no to OFF the use the Recent and they will never be made.
When they are turn off the current ones will be removed.

But if a user knows how, they may be able to turn back on.

What OS and programs are installed on these library computers?

We have some pc's with Windows and some with Vista. We don't want the patrons putting personal data into the system which others have access to or affects the memory.

Press Winkey+R
Type shell:recent in the Run box, press Enter
Select all and delete

On Vista/Win 7 you can click Start and type shell:recent in the Search box instead of the run box
