How can i clear the 'recently saved to locations'?

  collinsc 20:06 25 Jul 08

If you are saving a document 'save as' then a box appears asking where you want to save it to. Is there anyway to clear this list?

Previously someone has said that you will need to delete the document to get rid of it - however, this does not hold true, as the list will also show recently played DVDs within the list - which have now been removed!

What "list" are you talking about?

Try downloading/installing CCleaner. Running it could maybe sort your problem, however it is not clear from you post what list you are talking about.

sorry! its the save list, when you try to save something it defaults to.. well the latest location you saved something to... i.e "my documents> folder x" to help you out. but if you want to save to "my folders>folder z" then you will have to use the bar to select the location.
i want to remove everything from the said list!

i hope this explains it!?

Why don't you just go into My Documents>Folder x and delete the contents or delete the folder.

because as i say drive e is showing - which is the dvd drive- and there is nothing actually in the e drive at the moment- but when i click "save as" the drive e will show as one of the locations ive used.

I understand what you mean,
Control panel> Taskbar and start menu> uncheck the box that says 'store and display a list of recently opened programs' Apply and OK
