Application screen - Not displaying thumbnail vies of recent files?

ST9 in the Open tab, the recent files are displayed in thumbnail view. Is there a way to change this to display Details? Similar to a Windows view options.

 This isn't bad when I am at work, but when I am at remote site, the thumbnails take quite a while to update, and they update each time window is opened.

See screen shot of application in question.

That would have been easy if I had that, standard Windows setup. But I don't.

Screen capture of entire window attached this time.

Thanks for trying Bruce.

Yeah, sorry, I misunderstood. Don't know if that's doable.

The following suggestion does not answer your question, however does provide you with an alternative option to deal with slow remote sites.

Find attached a zipped batch file. This batch file will remove all history of recent files when run. I recommend running this batch first before starting up Solid Edge.

The lack of history may be preferred over time wasted while waiting for the thumbnails to load.

Good solution and script @pieter_nienaber

I found it to be working with ST 9 except it is also wiping out the pinned items and it would have been nice to retain those.
