Thank you for your question, my name is Richard.

To do this,

Right-click on Taskbar , click on Properties for Taskbar Properties and click on ‘Jump Lists’ tab


Now uncheck ‘Store and display recently opened items in Jump Lists’ and you will see ‘Number of recent items to display in Jump Lists’ turns to 0. Click Apply/OK.

To disable it

Open the Control Panel and click/tap on the Taskbar icon,
OR

On the desktop, right click or press and hold on a empty area on the taskbar, click/tap on Properties.

Uncheck the Store and display recently opened items in the Start menu and the taskbar box, and click/tap on OK.

this removes and turns it off.

If you have continued problems, or would like any additional information or assistance, please do not hesitate to let me know.

And if you can take a second to rate my service, that would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you
