There were a few files that I've already deleted from the system, but when I search for them, they still appear under the 'Recent Documents' list. This is proving to be a bit of a privacy nightmare.
There is an easier way that worked for me. Boot up the computer; however DO NOT LOG in. press ctrl atl f3
then you will see a log in screen for a terminal. log in as the root user.
the type the following
press: ctrl alt f2 or ctrl alt f1
which ever one works to bring you back to your gui log in.
you should notice your history is wiped clean.
