    Clear Document History

    I'm working on a computer at work. When clicking File in Word, I see that there's a list of Word documents that have recently been saved. The default's set for four. How do I clear the entries without resetting the default? Is there a way to clear all at once and is there also a way to clear entries individually?

    Click on Tools, Options, General and clear the box for most recently ("MRU") used files. If you change your mind later and decide you'd like to see the last few files opened, change the option accordingly - i.e Tools, Options, General, then enter the number of MRU Files, say "4" (or 9, which is the maximum I believe).

    You can get rid of individual entries in the list by Ctrl + Alt + - (minus sign).

    You will get a big fat minus sign. Got to you Most Recently Used list, and click the Minus sign on an entry in the list, and it will be removed.

    But be carefule with it. It will delete anything in the menus.
