    Hey all, i have been a long time visitor here and thought it's a great time to make an account.
    i was wondering about the thorough steps like the cmd ones.
    could it be they need a different syntax in powershell?
    thanks for all the content :)

    Hello Kenny, and welcome to Ten Forums.

    You can use the commands below instead in PowerShell.

    Code:
    Remove-Item -Path "$env:APPDATA\Microsoft\Windows\Recent\*.lnk" -Recurse -Force
    
    Remove-Item -Path "$env:APPDATA\Microsoft\Windows\Recent\AutomaticDestinations\*" -Recurse -Force
    
    Remove-Item -Path "$env:APPDATA\Microsoft\Windows\Recent\CustomDestinations\*" -Recurse -Force
    
    REG Delete HKCU\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\RunMRU /VA /F
    
    REG Delete HKCU\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\TypedPaths /VA /F

    Hi Shawn, I have forgot the setting that turns on the history for the run dialog. I promise to write it down this time.
