You delete the files the same way you did as far back as DOS - within the
file manager, now called Windows Explorer.

Can you describe what you're doing and what happens? As long as a file is
not open or otherwise protected against deletion/change, you should have no
problem deleting it either from any of the File dialogs in Word, or using
Windows Explorer.

Ah. Well, that's different. Do you want to actually delete those files? Or,
do you want to delete the shortcuts that appear in the Recent Documents
list? Deleting the shortcuts doesn't delete the files--it merely removes
them from that list.

Unlike in Word 2003 and earlier, there is no way to remove individual files
from the list. You can remove the files listed by setting the number to
display to 0, then setting it back to the desired number. Office - Word
Options - Advanced - Display subsection, set "Show this number of Recent
Documents" to 0. That will remove all of them from the list.

If you want to keep some on the list, but ditch the rest, click the the
push-pins for the ones you want to keep, then set the "Show this number..."
to the number of files with push-pins set. So, if you click the push-pins
for 5 files, then reset the number to show to 5, then all files except for
those 5 will be removed from the list.

Unfortunately... if you then reset the number to some number above 5, the
removed items will reappear. The only way I've found to make them go away
and don't return (until the next time you open them with the # set above 0)
is to set the list to 0.

The problem, of course, is that, even if you delete the files, the shortcuts
remain. In previous versions, you could use Ctrl+Alt+Hyphen to zap them;
Word 2007 doesn't provide any comparable feature.

Yep. In 2007, you can zap all of them at once by resetting the list to 0,
but they can't be zapped individually. And deleting the actual file has no
effect on the Recent Files listing.

Deleting the actual file has never had any effect on the MRU list. Of
course, that makes it especially tantalizing when users try to reopen a file
they opened directly from an attachment and saved (repeatedly) in a temp
folder. <g>

The macro at http://gregmaxey.mvps.org/Recent_Files_List_Editor.htm still
works with 2007 to edit the recent file list.

If you keep reminding me of this often enough, it may actually make it to
