    candel Clear Run History In Windows



    We all use windows run prompt to launch various windows utilities like command prompt, msconfig but whenever we type a command in run prompt it gets saved in Windows as Run History as Run MRU (Most Recently Used) List.

    Many of my friends gets annoyed to see recently typed commands in windows run as they do not want others to see what they had typed in run.

    Today, we will tell you all the ways to clear run prompt history in Windows XP and Vista.

    There two methods to clear the windows run history, the firstmethod is via windows registry to clear windows run and second method involves a free utility MRU Blaster which lets you clear windows run history

    Lets discuss both of these methods to clear the recently typed commands in run
