    I just want to know how to Delete the "Recent Documents" in Word 2007, that
    appear when I click-on the "Microsoft Office Button".

  2. Click on the Office (Pizza) button and then on Word Options in the bottom
    border and then on Advanced and go to the Display section of the dialog and
    set "Show this number of Recent Documents" to 0.

    The list is stored in the registry at
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\12\Word\FileMRU, from where you
    can delete individual entries
    or
    You can use the following macro which will reset the list to your preset
    preferred number of displayed documents:

    Sub ClearMRU
    Application.DisplayRecentFiles = True
    listsize = RecentFiles.Maximum
    RecentFiles.Maximum = 0
    RecentFiles.Maximum = listsize
    End Sub

    See http://www.gmayor.com/installing_macro.htm
    or to edit the list see

    Note, if you go to this setting in the registry, that Word keeps track of
    the last 50 files, regardless of your choice of how many to display, except
    when you set the number to zero.
