Excel 2010 - Auto recover exceptions for: Unwanted File

For example, clicking on File, Option, Save the user will note that there is a setting for "Auto recover exceptions for:" in this setting there is a file name that was created used for several days and never used again. I created this file several years ago. I would like to remove this file name from this setting however I do not understand how I can delete this file setting.

Listed below are several other file settings in the How do I remove this setting? #2Options section of Excel 2010 that I want to delete. One of these settings opens the same file every time I open Excel 2010. I do not want to open this file. How can I delete the file name from the settings listed below?

That's the name of the current workbook, it's only there when you have the workbook open.

The options you are highlighting are also being taken from there.

If this file opening every time you start excel it sounds like you have saved a copy in the 'xlstart' folder. look for the option "at startup open all files in" and see if there's a copy of you're file in that folder
