If it can be done, it would probably involve deleting the users configuration folder and allowing DW to rebuild it.

But I don't think that will work.  DW may store that information as part of the main program settings and you can't do much to those.

Out of curiosity, why do you need to do this?  It's an odd request.

My original post stands. Short of uninstall/reinstall or digging through the registry there is no way to do it.

Well I beg to differ, my comment was for a mac not pc, anyway I have sorted it myself:

I trashed the following and it reset Dreamweaver for me, the only thing is I had to setup my preferences again, no problem though  : )

/Users/name/Library/Preferences/Adobe Dreamweaver CS3 Prefs

do I get 50 points : )

You can keep your points, but I did get it right on the first post.

Sorry mate don't mean to chide but I was aware that I needed to delete certain files, but I did not know which ones, and where, I should have mentioned this in my question in the first place, but like you know mac and pc have different file structures on a pc you can it is in HKEY_CURRENT_USER - Software - adobe - Dreamweaver CS3 or 4 -  Recent File List and then delete, but with a mac I could not find anything until after risking deleting the prefs file.

Have the points : )
