How can I clear the history of previously opened files that appears by
clicking the down-arrow next to the File Name -box? Where does Windows store
this information? I have Windows XP Home Edition.
Any information would be greatly appreciated!

HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\ComDlg32\LastVisitedMRU
Common Dialog - Save As
HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\ComDlg32\OpenSaveMRU

Pete,

Which version of Media Player? Check Tools, Options, Privacy, "Clear History" button.
