Clear, Delete Recent Documents History In MS Office

by Rohit Khurana on July 4, 2011


While using the computers we want everything to be accessed quickly and that is why we use shortcuts for various options. One of such shortcuts to see your recently accessed documents is recent document history. It is one of the shortcuts available in your system for quickly opening the recently used documents. On the one hand as it provides a facility to see and launch your recently closed documents, on the other hand it also acts as a record for your latest activities.

This may cause some privacy worries for the user on public or on shared computers. If the user want to get rid of this issue and maintain its privacy then these entries from document history has to be deleted manually. Although it can be done but it looks like a complex task for many users and also it should be remembered each time.

So, in order to come out of this issue, one small application known as Automatically Clear Recent Documents History has been developed which is used to schedule deletion of recent history. It allows you to use the recent documents when needed and then it simply removes the list once you have finished. This utility automatically clears the list of your recently used documents from the history. You can schedule it to run after a period of fixed interval for recent history clearing and can also clean the recently used documents manually and that too in a single click.

In order to give the time interval after which it must repeat its activity you just have to double click on the system tray icon and there it will ask you to configure the preferred time interval for cleaning recent documents.


Once you set up the desired time interval, this tool will run itself as a background process and will not bother you at all.
