JSI Tip 3659. How can I clear the recent documents menu when the user logs off?

If you don't implement tip 3658, you can implement the Clear history of recently opened documents on exit Group Policy at User Configuration\AdministrativeTemplates\Start Menu & Taskbar.

If this policy is Not configured, you can enable it by setting the ClearRecentDocsOnExit value name, a REG_DWORD data type, to 1, at HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer.
