TIA

    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=/library/en-us/shellcc/platform/shell/reference/enums/filetypeattributeflags.asp

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