Disable “Most Recent” Function in MCE
September 2, 2005
I don’t know about anybody else, but it annoys me that Windows Media Center puts up thumbnails on the home page for the “Most Recently Viewed” (or listened to, etc.) items in Videos, Pictures & Music — sometimes it’s cute, but more often it’s just annoying.
Fortunately, Chris Lanier has the trick to make this “feature” go away. You can even choose to have it on one section but not another.
Warning — this requires a bit of regedit hacking, so proceed cautiously. With any luck this will soon make it into one of the various “Tweak” programs.
