  1. File Explorer and Recent Files


    At work, I'll open files on a network path that is only accessible at work, e.g.

    \\mywork.org\shares\file.xyz

    These files will appear in my recent list when opening File Explorer (Win+E). The problem I have is at home where that network path is not accessible, and the File Explorer window will HANG for minutes trying to find the file. I can get around it by running CCleaner and cleaning recent files, but I was wondering if there was something else that could be done where I don't have to wipe out my recent list?

    Thanks!

    :)

    You can try changing these settings, see if it does any good:
