    They are just shortcuts - as long as you know where the documents are
    actually, yes - it is safe.

    The information is provided "as is", it is suggested you research for
    yourself before you take any advice - you are the one ultimately
    responsible for your actions/problems/solutions. Know what you are
    getting into before you jump in with both feet.

    Hi,

    You mean from the start menu? Sure, they are just shortcuts to the actual
    files.

    Hi

    You can clear the Recent Documents list, yes. The files will still be left
    on your hard disk/partition. If you are clearing via the folder, please
    don't delete the folder itself, just files in it.
