Clear Recent Run Dialog Entries The Easier Way

Has it ever bothered you that there isn’t an obvious way to remove the previous items in the Run box in Windows? It’s often very useful, of course… but if you are just a little bit paranoid you might want to clean out that list on occasion.

Follow the steps below to accomplish the task:
  • Right-click on the taskbar--> and choose Properties--> then choose Start Menu.

  • Select the “Classic Start menu” option, and choose the Customize button. (Don’t worry, we’ll cancel out of the dialogs so you can keep the XP menu style)

  • Now just click the Clear button to remove all of the recent documents and applications from the start menu.

  • Once you’ve done that, hit Cancel and then Cancel again to make sure you don’t switch to the Classic Start menu.

Note that this method will clear out everything. so if you just want to remove a single entry you need to use the registry tweak method.
