Remove "Recent files" from My Files app in Samsung Galaxy Core Prime

by 123iamking   Last Updated April 15, 2018 12:11 PM

As you can see the "Recent files" in the picture, it's really annoying - it remembers every image which I just opened, thus violating my privacy.

Note that "Recent files" even remembers and shows my hidden images (which Images or Gallery won't scan and show).

I can make the "Recent files" forget about my recent images by going to Settings -> Application manager -> All -> My Files -> Clear data (check the second image), but that's just exhausted.

Is there anyway to completely remove this annoying "Recent files"?

In the past, I used Samsung Galaxy V and it doesn't have this "Recent files", then why my Samsung Galaxy Core Prime has?

In fact it is possible to do so. You just need to remove the cache files from Gallery and My Files then it removes recently added folders from Gallery and recent files from My Files.
