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.

@Gary_Dinges

 

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.

I found this today. Nice little tool to scrub the recently opened files listing!

 

Thank you!

 

For others you will need to update the version in the registry path to 110 from 109 to get this to work with ST10!

Or better yet enable the MRU Options shortcut menu...

 

  1. In the registry under "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Unigraphics Solutions\Solid Edge\Version 110\UI\MRU Options" change "Show Clear MRU Options" to equal "1"
  2. Restart Solid Edge
  3. In the Recent Files screen now right-click…

Voilà... clear both Recent and Pinned documents are now options.

 

I have attached a registry file for your convenience. Simply download and rename the extension from .txt to .reg and then double-click to install.

 

BTW, totally unsupported by GTAC and only tested in ST10.

Works in ST9 MP12

It only displays menu if a right click is made on one of the existing thumbnails, doesn't display menu if right click is away from thumbnails.

Also has option to open folder location of clicked on thumb nail. Smiley Happy

Thank You.
