Not today, but you never know when these things come in handy :wink: . Clear play-list and Edit preferences are no-go. The only place I found related content is in .recently-used.xbel in the user's home directory. I was wondering if there is any other straightforward way to clear it.

--totem, clearing history..

Mint menu>control center>system>Computer janitor
--one method..

Install bleachbit
http://bleachbit-project.appspot.com/
--it clears user history files etc..

I don't have totem, so I don't know if it (bleachbit) will see that application, but if it does, it can clear the entries

Thanks DrHu. This is what worked for me in gloria,

I created .gtkrc-2.0 in my home and added the line to it.

'bleachbit' looks good but they haven't added Totem to their list yet. The other two methods suggested didn't work out for me.
