Options, Open and Save, look around in there.

Go to where Patchy indicated (type OPTIONS) and change Application Menu Number of Recently Used Files to zero.

Whoops, sorry :smileysad:  While we are talking though, do you know where the File Open Recently Used File list gets used?

OK, I did some fishing.  File Open Recently Used List is used when displaying the Menu Bar which includes the File Menu, which you can display by using the drop down list on the Quick Access Toolbar.  Thanks to searching the web.

It was a big puzzle to me too, back in 2008 it was different, then 2009 it changed, 2010 it changed again.

you can just open " Regedit.exe " program, and go to:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER \ Software \ Autodesk \ AutoCAD \ 

and find "Recent File List" on the directory list

and delet your recent file

 

Good Luck :smileyhappy:
