Windows 7: Can I batch delete user-pinned user-pinned task bar items?

Can I batch delete user-pinned user-pinned task bar items?

I'm wondering if there is a way to batch delete all the user-pinned items that show up when I right-click, say, the OOffice Writer user-pinned icon on the task bar, revealing all my user-pinned documents (as well all the recently opened non-pinned docs)?

I know I can delete them individually, one-by-one, but I'm wondering where they're listed, say, in the registry or in appdata, or something, that would allow me to delete them all at once.

Clear as mud? Here's a pic:

Thanks, yes, I did get it figured out. Guess I forgot to mark it as solved. I'll do that right now.
