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.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Open Corel Photo-Paint. Click the "File" menu in the upper left corner.

  2. 2

    Roll your cursor over "Preferences" to expand the menu options.

  3. 3

    Click on "General Program Preferences."

  4. 4

    Click on the box labelled "Recently Used Files."

  5. 5

    Type "0" on your keyboard. With this setting in place, the "Recent File" option is completely removed from the Corel Photo-Paint menu options.

  6. 6

    Click "OK" to confirm the changes.
