Hi All
Is there a way to get rid of the "My recent documents" folder from the start up menu?

My system is XP Pro

When I opposite click on the folder I do not get the usual menu with all the options including "delete", all I get a list of what I have been opening over a long period of time, it would be nice to find a way of deleting the list of folders etc all at once, at the moment I delete them one at once and it takes forever. :confused:
Regards to for 2007

Right click on the Start Button > Properties > Customize > Advanced, at the bottom click on 'Clear List'.

That only clears the list. To Remove it completely from the Start Menu, use the above path and next to the clear list button uncheck List Recent Docs, although after doing the above I presume you have already worked that out...

Many thanks to you both, Stantley and Matt-h, I have followed your instructions and the the prob was solved, I will add your information to my list of tips that I have stored on a floppy and maybe it will benefit someone else in the future.
My thanks Robert.
