Can the start screen be blank in 4.3, no docs showing?

ver 4.3, English, start screen

Vista home basic SP2 English

the new version shows thumbnails of recently opened docs instead of a blank screen with just the list of recent docs in the pull down file menu.

this leaves confidential docs open to view if someone uses your PC or if somebody happens to be standing behind you while you are working

You can either click each single icon on the top right corner or you can go File > Recent document > Clear list (at the very bottom)

See the bug report / feature request FDO#74834 and in specific this comment and also the comment above which is containing this link into our foruum.

I did not test the workaround! No warranty. Errors expected.
