    When I use this wizard it offers a HUGE list of OLD choices
    under the heading

    "Choose a place to save this group of pictures:"

    Is there any way to clear this list?

    (I tried searching the registry, but couldn't find such a list.)

    This is coming from the "Common Dialog"

    COMDLG32.DLL (Windows) - Function List,

    But WHERE is the list kept? I can't find it in the registry
    or anywhere else.

    A search for the error message in google groups led to a posting from
    2005 where someone found the following solution.

    Found the answer.
    Here is what to do. This is for this specific field.

    I have deleted them from the registry & on reboot, they don't come

    As to where they were in the registry, took a bit of searching
    security forums to find out where to look.

    In case anyone is interested, or has the problem themselves in the
    they are called MRU's & my particular one was found here:
    version/WIA/WiaAcquisition Manager
    delete "RootFileNameMru"

    Back up the key first, just in case.

    THANKS! It works for the DirectoryMRU too!

    No wonder I couldn't find it: it's stored in hex!
