2 Steps to clear out recently used files - The Revit Clinic [Tip]

Source: http://revitclinic.typepad.com/my_weblog/2010/06/2-steps-to-clear-out-recently-used-files.html

You may run into a situation where you need to reset the recently used files back to the way they were when you first launched Revit.

In case you need to do this, you can do two things:

  1. You can edit the Revit.ini file that is located in C:\Program Files\Autodesk\Revit Architecture 2011\Program and remove the section for [Recent File List]. This will remove the recently used files from the Application menu (the big R in the upper left corner), but will not remove the files from the start page.
  2. Delete the Revit.ini file completely (or simply rename it). This will reset Revit 2011 and reset all the recently used files lists, including the start page. It will, however, also delete your path information for templates and families as well as a lot of other settings. You can repopulate the INI file with your information after you have opened Revit once and closed it, so it is a good idea to rename the INI file and not just delete it. Launching Revit after you rename or delete the file rebuilds the INI from scratch and then you can add anything back into it to get it back into the state you need it. Anything but deleting the INI will not clear out the Start Page recent files. Use this with caution.
Let me know if you have had to recent your recent files lists for any reason. I'd be interested to hear why you needed to clear the slate so to speak.
