2) Then Navigate to User Configuration > Administrative Template > Start Menu and Task Bar
3) Then on the right side look for the “Clear history of recently opened documents on exit” option.
4) Double Click it & select Enable Option & then just Apply it.

B) Disable Recent Document History

1) Go to Run then type gpedit.msc and press enter
2) Then Navigate to User Configuration > Administrative Template > Start Menu and Task Bar
3) Then on the right side look for the “Do not keep history of recently opened documents” option.
4) Double Click it & select Enable Option & then just Apply it.
