    This is what i did.Opened Preview>clicked file>opened recent>cleared menu.
    Then i closed Preview. This did nothing.BTW: Why do i need Preview anyway?

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

    Worked OK for me, even without closing Preview.

    After 3 more tries i managed to clear all but one. When i open recent the clear menu is gray. How can get rid of the last one?

    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??
