With Corel Photo-Paint, you can touch up family photos, work on large prints and combine layered images. If you're using Corel Photo-Paint to work on a personal project or make a surprise photo file for a friend, you may want to clear off the "Recent File" list. This list usually contains the titles and locations of the most recently used Corel Photo-Paint images, but you can remove it in a minute or two.
