How can "Recent Places" list be cleared with VBA? I have a hidden folder that I do not want to reveal.

Ordinarily here is a code example:

Example

This example sets the maximum number of files in the list of recently used files to 6.
Code:
<code class="lang-vb" style="background-color: var(--body-background-medium); border: 1px solid var(--border); border-bottom-color: currentColor; border-bottom-left-radius: 2px; border-bottom-right-radius: 2px; border-bottom-style: none; border-bottom-width: 0px; border-image-outset: 0; border-image-repeat: stretch; border-image-slice: 100%; border-image-source: none; border-image-width: 1; border-left-color: currentColor; border-left-style: none; border-left-width: 0px; border-right-color: currentColor; border-right-style: none; border-right-width: 0px; border-top-color: currentColor; border-top-left-radius: 2px; border-top-right-radius: 2px; border-top-style: none; border-top-width: 0px; box-sizing: inherit; direction: ltr; display: block; font-family: monospace,monospace; font-size: 0.87rem; line-height: 19px; padding-bottom: 0px; padding-left: 0px; padding-right: 0px; padding-top: 0px;" data-author-content="Application.RecentFiles.Maximum = 6
">Application.RecentFiles.Maximum = 6
Try substitute 0 for the 6

Not certain it will work without trying.</code>

Thanks, but not "Recent Files", "Recent Places" that came out with the "ribbon" and shows the path to the folders.
