I have noticed that links to files which have been deleted continue to be shown in the "search lists" or "search history". And if one tries to delete that ink, the error message "File Cannot be Found" pops up ... with the oportunity to "try again". Bottom line, it doe not eem possible to remove these links. Is there anyway to remove individual links from the "searches/everywhere" location ... or clear that listing altogether?
Clear search list?(6 posts)
You can try going into internet explorer's options and looking at the content tab, there's a setting for autocomplete. I think if you clear this list it'll clear the search list.
Otherwise, you could try and clear the recent items, but I think it's the other one.
sorry Super ... clearing the auto complete doesn't get it ... and clearing the Recent Items using the Proerties to get to the "Start Menu" doesn't work either ... not sure what to do?
but thanks anyway
Thanks for the suggestions Scott
But it seems that what works for Win2000 and XP doen't work for WinVista
..downloaded and ran scans with each of the app's you mentioned, and the links (to files long ago deleted from the "Download Folder" still show up under the WV Search Windows - "everywhere" or "indexed". When trying to delete link from search folders, continue to get error message that "file cannot be found" ... which makes sense, since it has been deleted - but can't get rid of the link! ???
