Answer:
Answer:

System Preferences > General has a "recent items" selector near the bottom of the pane. You can set it to none, 5,10,15, 20, 30, or 50.


In MacOS 10.13.3 High Sierra, in Finder, on the "Recent (folders) submenu, there is a selection below the list of recent folders to "Clear Menu".

Now you are getting into a very different issue. WHY do you want to eliminate the recents Menu? Why not just ignore it?


If the reason is so that others cannot see where you have been, that answer is:


"Each person who needs to use your computer should have their own Userid and password, and then would have no access to anything that is yours."


You can use "Fast User Switching" to allow them to quickly butt in and set your running Userid aside.
