i was wondering if anyone knows how to prevent wordpad from showing or re-creating entries in the recent documents list in windows 10. i have tried various settings that relate to this, but no matter what i tried, i can't completely disable the mechanism behind this. this includes gpedit.msc tweaks, registry tweaks such as "norecentdocshistory" set to 1, disabling several related stuff in the settings section of windows 10, etc. also, i was wondering how to prevent entries from being shown in the frequent places of file explorer, specifically when you click the "file" menu in the file explorer. this issue is also a problem in the original start menu, where it shows frequent apps, but i do not want to have this show any entries there, although i use openshell which is better, i still would rather not have entries showing in the other place.
