Recent items problem
My Recent Items button on the Start Menu does not display the 15 most recent items, but rather displays the first 15 items from the Recent items folder in alphabetical order. It is, therefore, useless.

One suggested cure to this was to do the following:

* Click Start, type "%AppData%\Microsoft\Windows" and press {ENTER}
* Right-click the folder named Recent, and choose Delete. Click Yes when prompted.
* Now, type the command "shell:recent" in Start - Search box, and press {ENTER}.
Logoff and login back.

However, I don't have a folder named "Recent" but rather "Recent items" and when I right click on it, I am not given a choice to delete it.

So, what should I do?

Thank you.
