Automatically deleting references to recently opened documents(Windows XP)

By Sunday, February 05, 2012 No comments
             The ‘Documents’ folder in the start menu displays the references to the recently used fi les. Thereby, anyone who has access to the PC can see the data you were working on and open them.
             Windows can delete the list at the time of shut down. You can activate this function in the registry. For this purpose, open ‘Start | Run’, type ‘regedit’ and press the [Enter] key. In the tree structure on the left side of the editor, navigate to the ‘HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer’ key.
              Right-click on a free space on the right side of the editor and in the context, select ‘New | DWORD Value’. Name the new entry as ‘ClearRecentDocsOnExit’. Open it by double-clicking, and set its ‘Value’ to ‘1’ in the ‘Edit DWORD value’ dialog box. Confirm this change with ‘OK’ and close the registry editor with ‘File | Close’.
              If you wish deactivate this automatic deletion of the references function, either allocate the ‘ClearRecentDocsOnExit’ with ‘0’ value or simply clear the value fi eld.
