In order to make it easier for you to find frequently played content, Windows keeps track of the local files that you have recently accessed. If you share your computer, you may not want others to see this information.

To clear the My Recent Documents list

1. In Windows, right-click Start, and then click Properties.

2. On the Start Menu tab, click the Customize button.

3. On the Advanced tab, in the Recent documents area, click the Clear List button.

Note that other users may still be able to see the list of files stored on your computer that you played on the File menu in Windows Media Player. To learn how to clear this list, see the previous question.
