Hi, I know how to clear the Recent List on the main Adobe screen and how to change the quantity of Recent files in the Preferences, but how do you clear the Recent List from the Icon on the Taskbar?  Right clicking shows all the recent files and was not cleared by the options above.  We sometimes share a computer and some of my work is confidential and I do not want the it to be traced through Adobe.  I have tried doing them manually one by one, but it just continues and continues with no end.  Please help as one should have the option of clearing all history.

Thanks Nancy, I do not have the option of not sharing - in the nature of my work I have to sometimes gives access to different people.  But the link solves the problem in conjunction with clearing the Recent List on the Adobe preferences.  If you set the recent files to 0 and then follow your link, the Taskbar Icon will no longer show a history.  Perfect!
