Disable "Documents" feature in Start menu??

How can I disable this feature so that recently accessed documents will not appear in "Documents" in Start menu?

I'm tired of clearing files in "Documents," and I don't want this feature.  Please help!

Removes Documents menu from the Start menu

"Removes the Documents menu from the Start menu.

The Documents menu contains links to the non-program files that users have most recently opened. It appears so that users can easily reopen the documents.

You can use this policy, in coordination with the "Do not keep history of recently opened documents" and "Clear history of recently opened documents on exit" policies in this folder, to customize your policy for managing access to recently opened files.

Also, see the Maximum number of Recent documents" policy located in User Configuration\Administrative Templates\Windows Components\Windows Explorer."

Do not keep history of recently opened documents

"Prevents the system from saving shortcuts to documents the user has most recently opened.

By default, the system saves a shortcut to each of the non-program files the user most recently opened and displays the shortcuts on the Start menu under Documents. The shortcuts let users easily review and restart recently used documents.

If you enable this policy, the system does not save shortcuts to the Documents menu.

You can use this policy, in coordination with the "Remove Documents menu from Start Menu" and "Clear history of recently opened documents on exit" policies in this folder, to customize your policy for managing access to recently opened files.

If you enable this policy and do not select the "Remove Documents menu from Start Menu" policy, the Documents menu appears on the Start menu, but it is empty.

Also, see also the "Maximum number of Recent documents” policy located in UserConfiguration\Administrative Templates\Windows Components\Windows Explorer)."
