The most recent documents in the list of WPS to protect privacy and peace of mind

Now many people are using WPS 2019, but it does not provide the option to turn off the “Recently Visited Documents” list by default, if you want to protect privacy can only delete access records. The following I for WPS Enterprise Edition (to as an example) and Personal Edition (to as an example), respectively, to introduce the corresponding closure method for readers with this need.

○Enterprise Edition

After starting the Registry Editor, expand to [HKEY_CURRENT_USERSOFTWAREkingsoftOffice6.0wpsRecentFiles], right click on the RecentFiles key and select “Permissions”, then in the Select the current user in the “Group or User Name” list, and set “Full Control” to “Deny” in the permission settings (“Read “permission will be automatically set to deny) (Figure 1). Click the “OK” button, a “Windows Security Center” pop-up box will appear, ignore, directly click the “Yes”. This “WPS Text” because there is no access to the relevant keys in the registry, “recently accessed documents” list will be displayed as blank.


Similarly, in turn, the [HKEY_CURRENT_USERSOFTWAREkingsoftOffice6.0etRecentFiles], [HKEY_CURRENT_USERSOFTWAREkingsoftOffice6.0pdf RecentFiles], [HKEY_CURRENT_USERSOFTWAREkingsoftOffice6.0wppRecentFiles] in the RecentFiles key for permission restriction settings, you can turn off “WPS Forms “, “WPS PDF”, “WPS Presentation” in the “Recently accessed documents” list.

○Personal version

WPS Personal Edition does not rely on the registry to control the list of “recently accessed documents”, but by its cloud services program Wpscloudsvr.exe to control, so the method of closure is different from the Enterprise Edition.


Launch “Task Manager”, switch to “Processes”, select “WPS service program, which provides account login, cloud storage and other services” (Figure 2), right-click it and select “Open file location”. Then right-click wpscloudsvr.exe in the opened folder and select “Properties”, and switch to the “Security” tab in the pop-up dialog box.

Click on the “Edit” button and select the current user in the “Group or User Name” list, in this case CCC (Figure 3).


Then set all options to “Deny” in User Rights (just check “Deny” after “Full Control”, other options will be automatically set to Deny) (Figure 4) . Click the “OK” button, click “Yes” in the pop-up box, and then log out the current user and log in again or restart the computer to close the “Recently accessed documents” list.
