Step 1: If you open VLC and go to “Media”. You can see an option ‘Open recent media’ or “CLT+1” (refer below image) where you can access your recent history. We can disable it. I played some tutorial videos to take snapshot. Don’t preassume that I am a geek. 🙂 😛
Step 2: Go to ‘Tool’ >> ‘Preference’ >> Untick “Save recently played items” and ‘Save’ it.
Step 3: Now go to VLC “Media” again and you won’t see “Open recent media” option anymore since we have disabled this feature.
Step 4: But this is not the whole story. If you right click on VLC logo on taskbar you can still see your recent played videos. Refer to below image.
Step 5: We have to disable this feature as well. Now go to ‘Desktop’ and right click. You can see ‘Personalize’ option down below. Click on it and it will open a new window.
Step 6: Go to ‘Start’ and disable ‘Jump list option’ as shown in below image.
Step 7: We are done. Now go to VLC logo and do confirm before your proceed.
For windows 8,8.1 you can probably try Step 1,2 and 3 and then the below method which was commented by one of my readers but I am not sure whether it will work or not as I haven’t tried myself.
Go To taksbar–>rightclick—properties–Jump Lists—>disable both checkboxes
