View Full Version : Remove Memorized fields - Specific

XP Pro

When I use the Scanner & Camera Wizard, I progress through to a section named "Picture Name & Destination".

In that section, are two fields; 1: "Type a name for this group of pictures" and 2: "Choose a place to save this group of pictures".

The fields have lists of names in them from previous entries.
I wish to remove/delete them so they never show again.

How do I do that please?

With either your backspace key or your delete key.

With either your backspace key or your delete key.

It is not that simple, tried that previously.

Try it yourself & you will see what I mean. Hook up your camera/webcam, take a photo with the Wizard, name it & the folder & save.

Close wizard & go through the motions again but this time, try to delete/remove the name(s).

I think it is something to do with Windows Shell.?

You could try this program, I use it everyday but use with caution, make sure that you only deleted those MRU's that you want to by setting the options correctly:

All fixed now. Installed MRU-Blaster but before i ran it, I went to the forum for it & had a search to see if anyone else ever had the problem.
One person did, who said Blaster did not remove the names.

The post mentioned the registry name.

I have deleted them from the registry & on reboot, they don't come back.

In case anyone is interested, or has the problem themselves in the future, they are called MRU's & my particular one was found here:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER/software/microsoft/windows/current version/WIA/WiaAcquisition Manager
delete "RootFileNameMru"

Back up the key first, just in case.

Thanks for letting us know your solution, so that it will be found when searched for at a later date.
