Windows 10: Clear down paths in the run command

    Clear down paths in the run command


    Hi

    When I right click the Windows Button, and select Run, if i hit the pulldown there's no items. So therefore no registry items in RunMRU to delete. However if i say type a drive letter, then all the things i've accessed will populate, even if they no longer exist... Example say I have a file that i navigated to via the run command, lets just call it D:\downloads\movie.mp4 Even though the d:\downloads folder has been deleted, if i hit d: in the run command, i'll immediately see D:\downloads\movie.mp4 along with everything else, i've accessed in the d: drive

    Everything is off on the Start menu in settings, and under folder options, neither options are enabled in the privacy (Show recently used files in Quick Access & Show frequently used folders in Quick Access) I've also hit the Clear button, to no avail.

    Any ideas on how to fix this appreciated ?

    If you don't mind using 3rd party program, Ccleaner can do that:

    alternatively you can set the Start_TrackProgs DWORD at HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced to zero.
