    Default How to remove individual entries from Run Command History

    If you use frequently the Run command, then you have need to delete individual entries instead to delete it all using a common cleaner tool.

    Run Command History is stored in the following Windows registry:

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Curre ntVersion\Explorer\ RunMRU\



    Here there is the list of commands used by you... of course you can remove single entries through regedit, but I don't suggest this operation for unexperienced Windows users, to prevent possible damages to the Windows registry.

    From bad to worse, it's quite annoying entering each time in regedit.

    I found this interesting vbs script that allows you to choice exactly, through a simple interface, single entries to delete.

    Download EditRunMRUList.vbs

    Unfortunately this doesn't work on Windows Vista/7 with UAC enabled.

    However there is a small workaround:

    1) Download Script Elevation PowerToys for Windows Vista
    2) Install ElevateWSHScript.inf (right-click on an INF file, select Install, and approve the elevation).

    Finally you can run as administrator this useful .vbs script, originally XP-compatible.





    Two tips in one.

    If someone is registered on Piriform Community Forums, I suggest to post this tip as possible feature in CCleaner.

    For example, such as Options > Cookies Interface.
