Easy Fix,,, Just remove it from your menu. * Click Tools * Click Customize * Click Menus Tab on top of page that appears * Under LibreOffice Writer Menus Click window arrow to expose FILE * Under Menu Content Highlight Recent Document *Click the Arrow next to Modify *Click Delete tis gone..... You can write your love letters with peace of mind....

This did not work for me. Using History Master worked.

This does not reflect LireOffice 5's menus, and the link for History Master is dead. This leaves NO solution in LibreOffice 5. Please advise.

Thank you, History Master worked like a charm. Pity the main program can't do this without an add-on.

zcot of linuxmint-help irc channel found the answer for me.

Tools, Options, Advanced, Expert configuration. Type picklist and search button. It's the 2nd in the list. Change the value to 0.

History master doesn't exist as a extension listing in libres official extension site.
