Hi, there!

I would like to know if you can turn-off the 'Recent Documents' feature in the File Menu?
I would like to do this for all files.
i.e. Word Processor, Spreadsheet and Data Base
I need to do this for security reasons.

Regards,
Roger :D

Try it:
Click on arrow at end of a toolbar -
Customize Toolbar - Menus - File - Recent Documents - Modify - Delete

Also, documents will be visible in the 'load url bar'; see viewtopic.php?f=6&t=34089 and viewtopic.php?f=6&t=18588.

Hi,

you could try the extension History Master. Set the List size (for PickList and URLHistory) to zero.
That works for me on WinXP and Ubuntu 10.04.
Histories.xcu remains empty.
