Recent documents is just a folder. You can remove the links by openning
up the recent files folder and deleting the links.


To clear the My Recent Documents list, follow these steps:
1. Right-click Start, and then click Properties. Or, if the Start menu
is already displayed, right-click an empty area of the Start menu, and
then click Properties.
2. Click Customize.
3. Click the Advanced tab.
4. Under Recent documents, click Clear List, click OK, and then click
OK. Your most recently used documents are removed from the My Recent
Documents folder. Note that this action does not delete the documents
from your hard disk.

Excel 2007's MRU list is kept in the registry he

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\12.0\E xcel\File MRU

You can easily delete them all but picking among them is tedious (with
REGEDIT). Someone should write a script to do that!
