    Clearing the MRU.

    I want to clear the MRU.
    How would I go about doing this?
    I know I can do this through the registry, but how would I edit the reg?
    Thanks!

    Which MRU (Most Recently Used List) are you referring to? There are several in a standard Windows install and most programs have MRUs of their own.

    If you are referring to the recent documents MRU on the start menu, you can clear it using SHAddToRecentDocs with NULL as the second argument:
    Code:
    SHAddToRecentDocs(SHARD_PATH, NULL);
