I'm both new to this forum and Windows 7. This is the same day I open it for the first time and I have a few questions to ask. Before I go further on, I just want to say that I have done my searching on Google and a bit on this forum, so I'm not trying to be a topic-waster or anything, I'm just desperate.
I have a external harddrive plugged into my computer, and when I search for some images on the startbar I can't find them unless I open them first. After I've opened a image file, it can now be displayed in the same search bar when I type some letters of the filename, no matter wich hardddrive it's located in. I know that I can delete this history by "right-clicking" and selecting "delete" on a file. I wonder if it's possible to delete this setting. On XP I think this would be categorized as "latest opened files".
In short: I don't want a "file history" for files I open in Windows 7. Can I disable this? Or view everything opened instead of searching for every individual image?
Edit: Looks like I "The Newbie" dominated this thread after all. The problem is now solved thanks to "researching behind limits". Now I can help you guys instead. The free and safe program CCleaner is the answer for removing everything that has something to do with history, logs etc. Both in web-browsers and the computer logfiles.
Now I'm satisfied.
