How to delete the Recently Browsed folder list in Microsoft Office Picture Manager
Microsoft Office Picture Manager has a Picture Shortcuts pane that shows a list with the Recently Browsed folders. While creating my video Micro Tutorial here at Experts Exchange showing How to Install Microsoft Office Picture Manager in Office 2013 (by utilizing Microsoft SharePoint Designer 2010), I discovered that Picture Manager itself does not provide the capability to delete items from the Recently Browsed folder list or to delete the list in its entirety. Fortunately, there's an easy way to do it outside of Picture Manager. This video Micro Tutorial explains the method.

1. Locate the OIScatalog.cag file


Open Windows/File Explorer or whatever file manager you use and navigate to this file:

c:\Users\<username>\AppData\Local\Microsoft\OIS\OIScatalog.cag

<username> is the user name, such as Joe in the screenshot below.

Step1

2. Exit Picture Manager and open the OIScatalog.cag file


Close all instances of Picture Manager that are running and then open the OIScatalog.cag file in Notepad or whatever text editor you use.

Step2

3. Delete lines


Delete the lines containing the folders that you want to be removed from the Recently Browsed folder list and Save the OIScatalog.cag file.

Step3

4. Run Picture Manager


Run Picture Manager to verify that the folders have been removed from the Recently Browsed list.

Step4

5. Optional test — delete entire list



Close all instances of Picture Manager that are running and then delete the OIScatalog.cag file. Run Picture Manager to verify that the entire Recently Browsed folder list has been removed.

How to Install Microsoft Office Picture Manager in Office 2013
Microsoft Office Picture Manager is not included in Office 2013. This comes as quite a surprise to users upgrading from earlier versions of Office, such as 2007 and 2010, where Picture Manager was included as a standard application. This video explains how to correct this serious omission by the folks in Redmond and install (for free!) Microsoft Office Picture Manager 2010, which plays very nicely with Office 2013. This video Micro Tutorial is fully documented in my Experts Exchange article, How to Install Microsoft Office Picture Manager in Office 2013.

1. Determine the bit-level of your Office 2013.


Open any Word document (a new, blank one is fine).

To see if you have the 32-bit or 64-bit version of Office 2013, click the File menu, then Account, then About Word.

Step1a
Step1b

2. Download the Microsoft SharePoint Designer.


Download the matching bit-level for your Office 2013 from one of these links:

32-bit
http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=16573

64-bit
http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=24309

Step2

3. Run the downloaded SharePoint installer.


Using Windows/File Explorer (or whatever file manager you prefer), execute the downloaded installer and on the opening screen click the Customize button.

Step3

4. Mark all three program sections as Not Available.


Click the drop-down on Microsoft SharePoint Designer and select Not Available.

Click the drop-down on Office Shared Features and select Not Available.

Click the drop-down on Office Tools and select Not Available.
