Selectively removing documents from the "Start | Documents" menu

As you know, Windows will add a short cut to the recently used documents in the "Start | Documents" menu. If you wanted to get rid of all the short cuts to most recently used documents all you have to do is:
  • Right Click on the Task Bar and click on "Properties"
  • Select "Start Menu Programs" tab and click on "Clear" ("Documents Menu").

Only problem is that above method removes all the documents in the "Documents" menu. Let's say you want to remove just some of the documents:

  • Run "Windows Explorer"
  • Select "C:\Windows\Recent" folder (assuming C:\Windows is the name of your Windows directory)
  • Select and remove the short-cuts that you wish to remove from the "Start | Documents" list from the right side window
