XP - Clearing Start/Run history

By HaroldDeWayne ·
Anybody got any ideas how I can clear this box? In Win98, I could just go to the Start bar Properties and clear the document list or clear my Internet Explorer History and it would go away . . . not in XP though.

Any help would be appreciated.

Yes, I downloaded it and tried it out. Didn't solve the problem, but it's a nice tool. What actually finally cleared it was the same as in Win98 . . . go into the IE properties box and Delete Files / Delete Cookies / Clear History.

Thanks.

You should be able to the same way you're saying...into the start bar properties, but then you have to go into the start menu tab and then hit the customize button and you'll see the clear list button on the advanced tab or the clear button if you're using the classic style of menus.

Good Luck to you
