Okay I see what you mean but as far as I can work out there isn't a way to limit lists but they can be cleared. Using my work machine currently but setup is entirely different as users desktops are remote and hosted on a server.

Here's my Recent Items folder. Totally different to my machine at home.

Also worth a look. Group policy settings here:

Clear Recent Items and Documents on Exit of Windows 7

Still can't find a way to limit number of entries in lists!

Once again I thank you all. The problem is I do not want to clear everything. Clearing everything does more than just clear the list there it clears everything in other places as well. Anyhow, thanks :-)

Okay back home on my home based machine. The best I can come up with - it seems to be application specific and I can pin items in the list and keep them but clear the rest. Here's an example. EMEditor (similar app to notepad) pinned to taskbar recent items list:

One item pinned and two items in recent.

Ran Ccleaner. Pinned item was kept. Recent items were cleared.

Also right clicking the tray icon gives customise options but you need to identify the correct menu.

If Ccleaner doesn't have application specific rules in it's winapp2.ini file then you need to either create them based on application specific research or download a new winapp2.ini file with more built in cleaners than the standard winapp2.ini file that is supplied with Cccleaner.

So bottom line is keep pinned items that you need and discard the rest of the entries in recent files by running Ccleaner.

Maybe other ideas from other members will be posted.

No need for CCleaner? When you only uncheck 2nd option, jumplists are gone, pinned items stay and Start Menu recent programs stay also.

Does that work for all taskbar pinned apps? If so I wonder if there's a way to automate it?

Wow :-) well done Callender. Unfortunately pinned items are not needed. This is a recent file list, hence I only care about what I used recently--an article I am working on now will not be of importance 2 months from now. A film I didn't finish seeing will only be needed once--after having been seen the shortcut can go. That is why it bothers me that if I delete this short cut I then get a previous older one, which is even more useless.

[Side note: Points-of-view are interesting--what is the view, or of importance to one, may not be to another. I would have thought that such a thing, the problem I presented, would have been noticed and bothered everyone with a Windows OS. In my head, in my view, how could it not? :-) ]

@Pintree. I see your point entirely but it seems that windows will add items to the list until it's cleared. The only way I can find to clear the list but keep recent items of interest is to pin those items before clearing the list. Once the list is cleared - old items do not reappear.

Okay so there's a long discussion on the subject here:

https://social.technet.microsoft.com...w7itprogeneral

The professionals commenting there say that you cannot partially clear some items from the jump list. One option as UserNameIssues hinted at earlier is to prevent apps from creating jumplists but then there will be no application specific history at all. You might still get a recent intems list on the start menu.

I'm pretty much out of ideas now!
