MRU keys in the registry

I am fairly new to NT platform and have a question about the registry. Is there a way to disable the registry from recording what is saved? For example, the following hive saves information about each type of file saved. HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\ComDlg32
I know the keys can be deleted, but is there a way to disable a list from being made?

Yes smarac, but doing it in there , is only relevant to that user account.

Best is to do it through where it says and it clears it for all users :)

Sorry guys, I'm loged as Administrator, I searched through registry and only found the suspicious key EMPTY, no subkeys under...
Is this normal ?

Or is this already Fool's Day ?

hahahah no Daemon , this is 100% legit

Are you opening ComDlg32 and not seeing any subfolders ?


Are you sure you followed the correct registry path - double check

it will be there, just follow the path exactly :)

I also found mine empty.
I believe this is due to the setting that clears the MRU on shutdown. In ItweakUI it is 'clear recent documents on shutdown' This applies to the current user only.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
