    Thanks for sharing your feedback about the recently used documents. We are working on making this feature better in our future releases.

    I'm not sure how many ways this issue manifests itself, but it seems to be akin to the issue I had, regarding the "Get Office" (365) app indefinitely retaining a list of "Recent Documents" (even after they are no longer 'recent'). This list is due to the "permanent" storage of 4 registry entries per each item on the list, with no way to delete them w/o editing the registry (which is the absurd way Microsoft left us with to deal with this issue). At your own risk, here's what worked for me:
    > Install the free version of Revo Uninstaller
    > Select "Tools"
    > Select "Microsoft Office Cleaner"
    > Check all the boxes
    > Click "Clear".
    The list should be cleaned the next time you run "Get Office" (365)
