Is there a way to clean (or parcial delete) files in "FILE > OPEN RECENT" history?
They're stored in file: C:\Users\<<your username>>\AppData\Roaming\Corel\CorelDRAW Graphics Suite X5\Draw\Workspace\<<your workspace name>>\CorelDraw.ini

I found this.
May I delet all lines under [Recent Files List]? No damage to original files?

No, deleting the lines of this text file will not cause damage to original files it references. Just make a copy of that text file before changing.
Silvio WinThanks, John.
Glad to help if it did.
Just curious why you wanna kill this list.

I'll kill your curiosity: in my home PC I'm doing a gift art for my daughter who has just been admitted to a Brazilian Airline, as Flight Attendant. As she sometimes uses CorelDRAW, I do not want her to see the file before the appropriate date. The original file was moved to a hidden folder and changed the extension of the file name, to be not be associated to CD.
You could always open a few more files and push that file off the list

Thanks for your suggestion... it works, but is time consuming. As the History (Recent Files opened) preserves the past 15 files, you need to re-open that amount so that the file in question disappears from the list. There should be a more practical way to eliminate the content of History.

There is a practical way but it's a Windows solution. Each user has separate settings when logged in. It should work well for Draw but I never tested this.
It's been 24 hours since you started your quest to remove this file from the list, I'm pretty sure you could have opened 15 files by now...
Hi Silvio, a F8 start should clear all recent files

Thanks for the tip. But I'm too lazy to do that because I had to reset some preferences that CorelDraw can not save (a disability of the CD already claimed).
