Windows 10: How to remove/or uninstall "Recent Items" in the windows 10 menu
How to remove/or uninstall "Recent Items" in the windows 10 menu
Hello everyone! When the windows menu pops up,when i hit the windows icon, coming down the list, you've got, documents, pictures,games, then "recent items", aside from opening a guest account, how can i alter that item, so other people viewing my computer, can see content that i don't want them to see.
Understand? Any help is greatly appreciated. Thank you.
Hi, is that can see... or can't see? Oh, ok, I think I see..
Is this what you need?
And you can encrypt sensitive folders or 'hide' them using various utilities.
I don`t even see the option for "recent items" or even "games" in settings. Are you using Windows 10 or 7 ???
Or possibly turn this option off ??
Win 10 Pro + Aeroglass (program) with a particular atlastheme that provides rounded corners. And a couple of other mods.
Nice but I don`t see how that helps the OP
Post a link to the program, but a sfc would probably boot it off the system
The MCP would hunt it down and kick it off the grid
I have the option to "remove from Quick Access" if I right click on the header of the Frequent Folders or Frequent Files Folders
these will return but they are a simple way to clear the entries
Right clicking the Quick Access folder then Options allow the folders to be removed from Quick access permanently
You can also add other folders to quick access if you use a particular folder often ( think favourite Folders in older windows versions )
Did you see the red ring in my screenshot in #2?
That's an answer.. this last simply confirmed I was using Win 10 not 7 in response to the OP's question, in case he thought my answer in #2 didn't apply to '10. Hope that's clear.
(And SFC /Scannow doesn't affect Aeroglass or my theme)
But he didn`t ask about the Quick Access area, he asked about the items right above the start button/window.
He also has me a bit confused, which isn`t hard to do
Post a link to that program please, I want it
I just received my new Laptop/Tablet with Windows 10. I'm not really liking Windows 10 at this point.
Anyway I've been installing my programs for a couple of days and downloaded one that auto defaulted to opening in Internet Explorer. Internet...
I used to be able to right-click on the "Recent" icon on the start menu and see an option to clear the recent files list. Now it's gone. The "Recent" icon is still there and still functions properly and lists recently opened files, but the "Clear"...
Despite a bit of careful Googling I can't seem to find a simple answer to this:
How do I remove items form the right-click menu in Explorer?
For example (see the attached pic) I want to remove items like "Compressed Folder" and...
Anyone knows why when i remove "Send To" & "Pin To Start" context menu entries from registry, windows automatically creates new one's after restart. Never had such problem in 8, and it's driving me nuts!!!!!
Thanks for help!
Another question I have about Windows 10. Back on Windows 7, under the all programs list I was able to delete anything I didn't want listed there. Unfortunately with Windows 10 I can't remove everything. So I am wondering how can I clean...
