It depends on the browser but typically its easy to get rid of, just delete the form info. (Under tools, clear recent history for Firefox) look for something similar if you use a different browser.

Deleting file from Excel also from recently created documents.


Hi jv_oberg,

The recent documents area of excel is just a snapshot of what it last opened, it's not really linked that document to excel. Eventually, after you open enough documents it will fall off the list. However, if it something that you would like to change, you can

  1. Click on Office button, and then click on Word Options (in Word 2007) or Excel Options (in Excel 2007) or PowerPoint Options (in PowerPoint 2007) in the bottom of Office Menu.
  2. Go to the Advanced tab.
  3. Scroll down to the Display section.
  4. Set the value for Show this number of Recent Documents: to 0 (zero). no-of-recent-docs.jpg
  5. Click OK button.
  6. Repeat steps above again, and set back the value for the number of Recent Documents to show to its original default, i.e. 17. If you don’t want this particular Office 2007 application to remember any Recent Documents, you can leave the value at 0 and skip this step.


That will clear your recent documents.

Good Luck,

Mark
