Hit the down arrow to bring up the list. Scroll to the entry you want to delete. Then hit the "Del" key.
This tip will work on most or all drop down boxes.

Removing Entries in the Windows Remote Desktop Connection Client
To remove entries from the Remote Desktop Connection Computer box in the Windows Remote Desktop Connection client, start Registry Editor, and then click the following registry key:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Terminal Server Client\Default
Entries appear as MRUnumber, and are visible in the right pane. To delete an entry, right-click it, and then click Delete.

Also to clear last and only item in list, after you have cleared the registry.
Then do this :

Open Remote desktop app.
Press <Options>
delete the computer name or IP address in " Computer; "
Then press <Save>

This is for them who need to delete the last listing.
