    Question WordPad history

    I am trying to find out where the history is stored for the recently opened files in WordPad. Is it built into WordPad or is it a log file?

    This is off the top of my head. I've seen history lists in the following places:
    ini files
    log files
    and registry entries.

    Word stores it in the registry:
    HKCU\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\word pad\recent file list


    PS MS puts most of that type of info in the registry

    The same problem to me now, I found files what you suggested but nothing.

    Then I would say stop using what you use or do to that cleans out recent used.
