    Unhappy Why do DWG files not show in recent file list?

    I use the menubar in ACAD LT 2012. I find it a nuisance that all my DST files are listed, even though some may have not been accessed for years, while my most recent drawing does not show!
    I know if I click on "BIg Red A", the drawing is listed, but still all the DST files come first. I'm not a fan of big red, as it has a bit of a lag to react to being clicked.

    Is there a setting I can activate to hide the DST list? I know I can access them from the SSM pallete, or by setting up the drawing-SSM link.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    The amazing Jeff M provided a standalone utility to clear out .dst files from your recently-opened list. Here's the link:
