The Recent Documents Folder


The recent documents folder in Windows is where all the files which you access are recorded. The records are kept as shortcuts. When you clear the documents menu, Windows simply deletes all the files in this folder. This makes the Recent Docs folder show > empty. Without going to the trouble of going to Taskbar settings you can create a batch (*.bat) file to clear the recent documents menu for you.


cd windows

cd recent

del *.*
