Windows Explorer MRU (most recently used) clear search powershell script


This one line powershell script will clear the Windows Explorer MRU (most recently used) search list.

The downloaded zip file also includes both the ps1 script and a compiled exe (executable) version of the script for those who want to run it without launching powershell or if you want to place the exe in your windows start-up folder to clear the search entries each time you start windows.  It works on Vista, Windows 7 or windows 8 and server 2008 or 2012. Getting to your startup folder in Windows 8 or Server 2012 requires browsing to the  location below

C:\Users\<User Profile folder name>\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup
