    You would need to go to the app that was used for that document and remove it from the recent documents list within the app. For example if a Word document shows up in the list and you want to remove it; open Word and then in the recent documents list within Word right click on the entry you want to remove and select Remove from list.

    - doesn't seem to work with Office2007
    - there is no option to remove entries from Recent Documents in Office2007 Powerpoint

    - is it worth having Office2007 as well as Office 365?
    - maybe, I should just uninstall Office2007 and rely entirely on Office365

    - any thoughts?
