If you delete the file on the drive. When you click on the link in the recent list, you will get an error message that it can not find the file and will remove that link from the list.

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.
