Disable “Recent Documents” in Gnome Desktop.

In Gnome Desktop, whenever you open/view a file, it is recorded/remembered. You can access the files again via “menu > Places > Recent Documents”. To turn off this feature, edit (or create) the file ~/.gtkrc-2.0 and add the following line:

gtk-recent-files-max-age=0

Save the file and you are done.
