Clear recently accessed files in Linux Nautilus / GNOME File Manager

Hi, on this little guide, you will learn how to clear recently accessed files in Linux Nautilus. Nautilus is the file manager built for GNOME. There are a lot of reasons why you will need this command. Maybe you’re accessing sensitive data or maybe you don’t want your grandma to see your nasty little videos?

Anyway, just fire up your terminal and write or copy paste the following command as root or using a sudoer.

sudo rm ~/.local/share/recently-used.xbel

And that is all you need to do for clearing that list. I hope you enjoyed this very long post.
