Clear History in file manager

Post by wpshooter » Wed Mar 07, 2018 6:03 pm

Can anyone explain to me exactly what history this is talking about in Linux Mint Mate file manager

Are you sure you want to clear the list of locations you have visited?

Is this talking about folders and/or files or is this talking about something else ?

What are the consequences of clearing whatever it is asking about ?

The recently accessed documents in the Places > Recent Documents option. You should make sure this option is cleared if you don’t want others to see your activities.

No consequences

The visited directories are listed below Go/History. These will be cleared.
