Hi Nigel,

There is no option in the UI to accomplish this. But can be done by
modifying the EditFlags registry value.

FILETYPEATTRIBUTEFLAGS:
http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/libr...

FTA_NoRecentDocs (0x00100000)
Prohibits the addition of members of this file class to the Recent Documents
folder.
