When I map a drive in Explorer, the folder drop-down box shows a
history of previously mapped connections. How can I clear the history?

To clear the history, you’ll need to modify the registry. Here’s
the procedure:

1. Start the registry editor “regedit.exe”.
2. Go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion
\Explorer\Map Network Drive MRU.
3. Delete the letters in the right window. Also delete the entry
MRUList. The MRUList contains the order in which the entries
appear in the drop-down box in Explorer in reverse order. For
example, the list “edcab” would show the entry associated with
drive letter E at the top, then drive D, then drive C and so on.
4. Close the registry editor.

You do not need to reboot or log off. The changes take
effect immediately.
