Thanks. OK - I'll try both, but "recently opened / used documents" isn't the same as "recently saved." Or is it? Except there's no "gpedit.msc" located in C:\ in Vista hm prem. There's a gpedit.dll - that's as close as it gets. Not sure, but AFAIK this drop list doesn't contain names of files that were recently opened - only recently saved. Could be wrong.
Do you tried Delete or Shift Delete button on entries?
I'm not talking about deleting them from the box to enter the filename (to save).
I mean delete the long list of previous file names in drop-list. Windows rarely, if ever lets one delete items like that from pop up lists.

It's just "recent".

Ohhhhh Home Premium, yea you'll have to do it the more hands-on way via the registry. Be very careful with the registry editor, you can potentially clobber your system if you mess around in the wrong area. Navigate to "HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer", create a new DWord called "NoRecentDocsHistory" and set it to 1. You may or may not have to make the Explorer key manually.. it's been ages since I touched Vista, although this key will work, it's been there since WinMe and 2K. Use HKLM instead of HKCU if you want it system wide.
