My kids went looking for a certain picture of the family dog and opened up a
slew of directories that now appear in the Recently Browsed section of the
Pictures Shortcut pane in Microsoft Office Picture Manager 2003. How do
clear the list or at least pare it down to the directories I normally use?

It appears to reside in a file named "OIScatalog.cag". I don't know if
you can edit it but deleting it will make recent go away, and the file
will be recreated when you open manager again. The path may vary but on
mine it is found at

"C:\Documents and Settings\pwarirel\Local Settings\Application
Data\Microsoft\OIS"

After that, you may wish to give your children their own (limited) account
and reserve yours for your own exclusive use.

I tried it, and if you edit the OIScatalog.cag file there is a line for
each item in your Picture Shortcuts, including the recently browsed.
Just delete the lines you wish to remove. It is a simple XML file with
line entries for each item in your shortcuts.

I tried finding this path, but had no luck. So, I simply created new folders
and copied all my "problem folder" pics to them, and then deleted the the
recently browsed folder(s) in Picture Manager. After that, I simply renamed
them back to their original names. Simple, and no tricky fiddling with file
paths, registry entries etc. Too bad that Microsoft can't provide a simple
command function for this removal. (Or include it in Help)

This has frustrated me for MONTHS, and now it's fixed! Thanks for the input,
I'm glad I found this forum. Path was there, editing was easy, and now those
pesky network drives that are no longer there don't SLOW ME DOWN.

.........this worked for me as well. The obvious question is now "what are
microsoft doing about it?" In Internet explorer at least there is an option
to clear history.

Does it exist in Office 2007?

Just wanted to say thanks for this...and even this damn question. I had
some pictures of, er, ummm, rocks and trees, yeah that's it...rocks and
trees, and they kept showing up in the recents of PM. And you know, I don't
like just ANYONE looking at my pictures of, of, rocks and trees so I'm happy
now to know how to get rid of their listing in recents from now on.

Big THANKS.

Minor

I keep saying that you shouldn't be doing *anything* on a computer that is
shared with others that makes you want to erase the history. Do that on a
private computer only.
