Preview is the default program for viewing and annotating most image files and
PDFs.

Worked OK for me, even without closing Preview.

So, you are saying that when you click on Recent Items, you see "clear menu" in grey? That's how it is when you have nothing in the Recent Items. The fact that it is grey means that it's not available to use. As soon as you've opened a file, it becomes black, meaning you can select it.

You can't get rid of it.

Why do you want to??
