Can I filter out items in Current Windows, Recent or Frequent menus?

This page is for beta release v11.1 and more recent.

The section Menu Exclusions of the Options dialog box allows to control what folders or files will appear in the submenu found by default under the In the Works menu.

Exclude folders from the Recent and Frequent menus

To exclude folders (including their subfolders and files) from the Recent Folders, Recent Files, Frequent Folders and Frequent Files menus, enter their paths, one per line. Optionally, you can use wildcards characters * (standing for any number of any characters) and ? (standing for any single character) before an ending slash.

For example, the following exclusions in the Folders Exclusions box would exclude the folders (including all their subfolders and files) C:\Private and all folders on the C:\ drive with a name that starts with Hide.

C:\Private
C:\Hide*\

Exclude files from the Recent and Frequent menus

In addition to folder exclusions, you can exclude files in any folder by entering their extension or by using file wildcards characters * (standing for any number of any characters) and ? (standing for any single character).

For example, the following exclusions in the File Exclusions box would exclude the MP3 files and all files with name starting with priv and having an extension like .mp3 or .mp4.

mp3
priv*.mp?

Application exclusions from the Current Windows menu

There may be some applications that you do not want to see in the Current Windows menu. In the Current Windows Exclusions box, enter a list applications that you want to exclude.

Enter any part of the window title of the application to exclude (the window title is what appears in the top horizontal bar of the window). You can enter multiple exclusions, one per line. For example, to exclude windows of applications Sticky and GhostWindows, enter these lines as shown below:

AStickies:
GhostWindows

You can also exclude windows by their class name or process name (EXE file name). You can find more help on these advanced techniques on last parts of the page Can I block the QAP menu trigger (middle mouse button) if it interfere with one of my other apps?
