Which API function Calls the "erase recents documents" in Taskbar and Start Menu properties?

Recommended Posts



I do know the API function :

RunDll32.exe shell32.dll,Options_RunDLL 1

But I would like to force a erase of the recently accessed documents, programs, and web sites... as the ERASE button that we find in Taskbar and Start Menu properties...

Deleting the recents files in the specific folder is not enough, I want the same function as the Button ERASE, because this deletes more than the recently accessed files.

Do you know how to do that?

Thank you
