    The english version of that function is called "Clear history of recently opened documents on exit." In addition, this fix only works on Windows XP Professional, since Windows XP Home does not allow for users to modify group policies.

    The english version of that function is called "Clear history of recently opened documents on exit." In addition, this fix only works on Windows XP Professional, since Windows XP Home does not allow for users to modify group policies. However, users of Windows XP Home may disable recent documents by inserting a DWORD value (with the name "NoRecentDocsHistory" and the value of "1") into the registry at HKEY_CURRENT_USERSoftwareMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVersionPolicies Explorer See http://worksmart.techwhack.com/18/disable-recent-documents-history/ for more details.
