Disable Recent Documents History

This feature can be a “spyware” in the wrong hand, why? Even this feature looks like simple and harmless, this feature can make records which documents we opened, so if we working on private documents that mean another user can track down on those documents. Of course you can disable this feature, but you also can make this feature enable but not to record anything. I prefer second option than the first one, because with this option we feel like a winner on spying game. Wants to be a winner? follow these steps.

  1. Click Start > Run > type ‘ regedit ‘ to open registry editor.
  2. Find this key:



  1. On the right pane make a new DWORD value, and named it ‘NoRecentDocsHistory ‘ (Right click on empty space on the right pane and choose New >DWORD Value).
  2. Double click that new DWORD value and set the value to ‘1’ to enable it.
  3. Restart the computer.
