How to remove links from most recently used files
Posted: 13 Feb 2012 06:34 AM
Having created a few movies in live movie maker, there are still links to those files in the "Recent Projects History" on the file menu, although the files have been deleted.

I gather they are references in the registry, but does anyone know a way to clear them?

I am using Windows 7 32bit OS
Many thanks

Yes, the list of recent project files is stored in the registry under the following key.
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows Live\Movie Maker\Recent

If you are comfortable with editing the registry, you can delete the contents under that key.

Find Run in the start menu and type Regedit

You will probably want to back up your registry before making any changes. You can cause major problems editing the registry if you are not careful.
