Clicking the Recent charm button on Start Menu Reviver displays a list of recently accessed or used files and folders.

Clearing (deleting) or turning off this list is easy.

How to delete the list of Recently accessed items:


Open up Libraries or the Windows Explorer window
Click on File, select Delete History and click on Recent Places List

How to turn off the Recent list feature completely:

Right-click the Start button or the task bar, choose Taskbar Properties, click the Jump List tab, uncheck the options to store recent items, click on OK.
