Stop this desinformation!
OP is using 19.2 Cinn !!!
Don't worry Pepper-Mint-Patty, I know what you're using.
I think anyone who has read your posts carefully, will know that, too. Of course, you could have been saying that in good humor, in which case, it is humerous.
Anyway, I've got a few minutes now, so I thought I'd let you know a few things. I'm looking into this further, and I have a few theories to check. Please give me some time, and I'll have a better answer for you when I can, maybe much later today. Unless, of course, another member of the forum already has the answer!
By the way, you can turn off the recently used files list in your Privacy settings or in your Configure Menu settings (Show recents). Note that the Privacy settings will also effect recently used files listed in some other applications (those that use the GTK2/3 framework). On 20.1, you can also change the maximum number days to keep files in the recent list...
Note: One reason there isn't a max number available is likely due the fact that the “gtk-recent-files-limit” property is no longer available:
GtkSettings:gtk-recent-files-limit has been deprecated since version 3.10 and should not be used in newly-written code. This setting is ignored
Ref: https://developer.gnome.org/gtk3/unstab ... iles-limit
So, the solutions at the point are:
(1) Turn off the recent list (in Privacy settings). This will effect other applications.
(2) Turn off "Show recents" (in Configure Menu settings).
(3) Set a lower number of days to keep files in the recent list (in Privacy settings).
(4) Clear the list when desired.
(5) Create a custom script to shorten the list.
