Run regedit, navigate to:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER/Software/Microsoft/MediaPlayer/Player/RecentFileList. In the right pane, right click the file you want to remove from the WMP MRU list and choose "Delete". Exit regedit. Repeat the process for all the files you want to delete from the MRU list. Hope that helps, shorty420.

**BACKUP THE REGISTRY BEFORE MODIFYING IT**

I installed the MRU cleaner from the old media player power toys (still available on the Microsoft site) and it still works like a charm in XP.

You don't even need to enter the registry or download any software, just copy and paste this into Notepad call it NoWMPList.reg and save it on the desktop (or anywhere):-
----------copy and paste below-----------------------------
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[-HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\MediaPlayer\Player\RecentFileList]

----------end copy and paste--------------------------------

When you want to get rid of the list just double-click the reg file

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
