sliprooster --I did not explain it well ---what I meant was if you have say 10 items on the list in the open recent file can you just clear 2 or 3 of them and leave the rest on the list. ( I'm thinking of when I make a major error and start again and I just want get rid of the attempt with the error )

Except that if the file is on a portable hard drive that you have disconnected, that does not work. You click on the file and it tells you it can't be found but it does not remove it from the list.

That needs to be done in your file browser. Explorer on Windows or finder on a Mac. It can also be done with Adobe bridge. Find the file then hit the delete key.

I'm still confused. I deleted the file from my Desktop (on a mac) and it still shows in Recent. I click on the photo in Photoshop, I get the missing error, but it doesn't remove the missing file from the Recent list. How do I remove individual files from the recent list without clearing the whole list?

"they also have been removed from my Mac drive"

Clear Recent File List​, as the name suggests, does not remove files on disk. You must have removed them somehow else.

I'm not sure what happened. I use MacBook Pro and when I click on File, Open Recent and check on Clear Recent Files, it only removes them from the PS program. I may because I am using them from a flash drive and not from my MacBook. I hope that helps in the future.

Clear recent files, is not suppose to delete any files, only clear the list. You should use finder to delete your files.
