Anyone know how to delete the "open Recent" list out of Windows Media player for MAC? I've tried everything and have done a search. I've even tried removing the program and then reinstalling it...but the old OPEN RECENT list is STILL THERE!! ahhh!!


there has got to be some way to do this. I know you have to edit the registry in a windows based machine. how would one do this with OSX?

thanks for your help!!!

To clean the recent playlist in WinXP you don't have to play with the registry, there is an option in the preferences menu that i can't find in the Mac version. WM keeps the list as a kind of bookmark system but i can't find it either. If as you say after deleting the program and reinstalling it the playlist is the same it has to be within a preference files somewhere else, i have tried to cleanup with Onix but nothing yet.

go to users/username/Library/Preferences/ and delete Windows Media Player Prefs and Windows Media Favorites. Tried it and all my recent stuff was gone.

That should do it for you.
