    Can I turn off "Recent Files" in File Explorer?


    Every time I open file explorer it displays my recent files. I would like to turn this feature off. If I can't find my own files without recent files, you can have my computer.

    Why does Windows 10 want to hold our hand on everything?

    You know those little kids in the Win 10 commercials? The ones that don't have to worry about security.
    Well they will not have to worry about their EMAIL either. If email arrives Win 10 will never notify them, action center, sound and banner notifications never work.
    Naturally the Mail App live tile only displays for 10 minutes if at all. (ignore this I'm just venting).

    If I reply to your post by tomorrow maybe some mail arrived.

    Explorer > File > "Change folder and search options" > General tab > At the top: "Open File Explorer to:" switch to "This PC" > Ok.

    Thanks for the reply. I have a follow up question. Do you think "Recent Files" can still be found somewhere in HISTORY? What I am asking is even if Recent Files are not being displayed, are they still created and saved somewhere?

    CCleaner can quickly delete the Windows Temp files.
    (That's where things like that are kept.) :)
