How to Clean Up or Delete Recent Files in Photoshop?

In this quick Photoshop tutorial, we’ll guide you on how to clean up or delete recent files in Photoshop in just a few simple steps.

To begin, open Photoshop and navigate to the “File” menu. Here, you’ll find the option “Open Recent.” This is where all the files you’ve recently edited are displayed, but sometimes, you might not want them all there. The solution is simple: click on “Clear Recent File List,” and now all the recently opened files will be removed.

But what if you want to prevent these files from appearing in the recent list altogether? It’s just as straightforward. Go to “Edit,” open “Preferences,” and select “File Handling.” Within this menu, you can set the number of recent file list entries to 0. Once you click OK, any files you open or edit won’t appear in the recent list. With these simple steps, you can efficiently manage your recent files in Photoshop.
