I know there is a way to get rid of the “recent” folder in Gnome 3 Files via:
Settings -> Privacy -> Usage and History
The thing is that I want to keep history in the default gedit and Evince (Gnome default programs for Text and PDF files respectively)!
In dconf Editor there is some options:
- remember-app-usage : this option doesn’t seems to do anything to influence application histories whatever change I pick (TRUE or FALSE)
- remember-recent-file : this option is basically what do Settings/Privacy/Usage and History
Now what I want is that default Text and PDF viewers shouldn’t be monitored for their own histories and their recent files kept in the editor menus even if if “Usage and History”/Recent folder are turned off.
wiping the file
remove also the two preceding editor menu from recent files.
