Hi Kevin,

It is a little hard to prevent it from appearing in the recent files list – it’s a Windows function. I do not know if you can make things conditional or disable it.

However, if you have closed the document correctly and AxCrypt does not show the red clean broom icon, it should be re-encrypted and removed from the temporary location – and thus not be possible to open.
