The above suggestion is for clearing the history for the programs list on the left pane of the Start Menu, is it not?

If that's not what you are looking for, what you are trying to do can be easily achieved through the use of TweakUI or CCleaner. Very different products, but both are capable of clearing document history (and in the case of CCleaner, other MRUs as well).

There may be an option elsewhere in XP for clearing document history, but I haven't seen one. It's not on the Start Menu; that's definitely for the programs list.

Thanx Guys i got it, it was simply to remove previous viewed documents.

ade.h, assuming your using the default XP start menu, then follow 'Skills' advice, it's under the 'advanced' tab click here

Thanks for the image, crx. However, that option is not present on my Start Menu properties! click here
