Wondering how to clear the "Documents Area" on your Start Menu?
Go to SETTINGS
Click the START MENU PROGRAMS tab
Here you will find the button to
CLEAR DOCUMENTS MENU
(this will EMPTY your DOCUMENTS MENU)
---if you want to REMOVE AN INDIVIDUAL DOCUMENT do this:
Use WINDOWS EXPLORER to go to folder
C:\WINDOWS\RECENT (this is the actual documents file)
RIGHT MOUSE CLICK on the document in question
then DELETE it
(these files are just SHORTCUTS to recently created files...
here you are only DELETEing a shortcut and not an actual file)
NOTE: Another way of clearing the entire
document menu is to RIGHT CLICK
on an "empty spot" on your TASKBAR
