Warn user about selecting 'Windows Explorer' ↳ 'Recent documents list'


The 'recent documents list' cleaner item under 'Windows Explorer' in fact resets pinned locations in Quick Access to their defaults (under Windows 10; I don't know about earlier editions). I had to figure this out the hard way, so it'd be nice if others didn't have to.

Edit: this cleaner is identical to 'Recent Items More' under 'Microsoft Windows' (winapp2.ini), for which there's already a warning.


@Andrew: Yes, this also resets my Quick Access, as well. It might be a good idea to add the warning.

Thank you, both.

I added the warning: This option will reset pinned locations in Quick Access to their defaults.
