I don't think you can do this, but you can delete the from the My Recent Documents.

You should try Ccleaner it is freeware and removes the history of most things.

This is easy stuff. Right click on your taskbar and click properties. Then select the "Start Menu" tab and click Customize. Then in this new window, select the "Advanced" tab and at the bottom untick the box that says "List my most recently opened documents"

You can also click Clear List if you want. Hope that helps.
