Clear recently used file list in MS Word
To remove certain documents from the File menu, select CTRL | ALT | - (the minus key next to the zero key). This will change the mouse pointer to a thick bold horizontal line. Select the File menu and click whichever document you want to remove from the list. BEWARE!!! This trick can also remove actual menu settings such as "Save", "Save As", etc. If this occurs (or you select the wrong thing), search the C:\ drive for normal.dot and delete it. Open word again and everything should be back to normal!

    fantastic, just what I needed, thanks! I went to some other site that gave all this code for running a macro to clear the recently used file list in Word. Who'd do that once you know this way? Word is such bloatware, yet Microsoft don't provide any way of clearing the recently used file list (at least none that they tell you about).
