[Solved] How to remove from "Recent Documents"?

Postby THEBookMan » Wed Jan 10, 2018 4:42 pm

I often open & edit documents, then close and delete the doc from my folder.

The document continues to shows up on my "Recent documents" until it finally drops out the bottom.

Is there a way to remove deleted doc from that drop down?

Look at the very bottom of the list of recent files ...

You cannot remove just one - it's all or none (unless you fancy editing registrymodifications.xcu, which is not a supported method).

See the Writer Guide, the Writer FAQ, the Writer Tutorials and Writer for students.

Remember: Always save your Writer files as .odt files. - see here for the many reasons why.
