    Oh... That's the jump list. You can right click on each item and choose 'remove from this list'. Or you can turn off the jump lists. Right click on the start orb, and choose properties. Then while on the 'Start Menu' tab, click the 'Customize' button. At the bottom of this new window are two options for 'Number of recent programs to display' and 'Number of recent items to display in Jump lists'.
    Set them both to zero and you will see no listing.

  • Blair,

    To disable Windows Media Player 12 history feature, right-click anywhere in the top navigation bar and navigate through the Tools folder to the Options Menu. In this menu, navigate to the Security tab. From the bottom portion of this menu, you can individually uncheck different types of content that Windows Media Player will "remember."

    Sorry, I was just referring to the top area of the player - where you right-click to get the ordinary Edit and Tools menus, etc.

    The other way to get that toolbar to show up is to just press the alt key.

  • ok that doesn't do anything i unchecked everything that was there. And it didn't work. I got to the task bar and still right click on the windows media player and it still shows the videos i have bin watching lately. It   says frequent: then lists them.

    Set the "number of recent items to display" to zero and you shouldn't see the frequently watched/recent items anymore. This worked for me.
