Clearing "recent files" list in Rh 9


I'm running Redhat 9.0

In my start menu I have an option to look at "recent" files. I click on it and a window opens with all the recent files I opened. So far, so good.

My question is: How can I clear this "history files" list?

I've searched the manual, no luck. Searching here for "history files" and for "recent files" gave me nothing I could use in this situation.

Thanks

If you're using kde, bring up the recent files list. At the top, there should be a button labled 'clear history'. Just click on it.

Ah, I forgot to add that my interface is GNOME. No "clear history" button.

Thinks
