    How do I turn off (if possible) the feature that shows the last items opened in a previous session of some applications.

    Usually the application itself will have something in the preferences. Also the settings for the "recent items" in the :apple: menu can be adjusted from system preferences->appearance panel.

    Just tried all you mentioned, and it didn't change anything.
    Even went into Preview, MSW and Excel, changed it there.
    Still opened up the last work.

    Hit the red close button first before you hit quit.

    OK, that worked on MSW and Excel, but not on preview.
