I know this is more of an OS question but I can't find the path searching the web. How can I clear the context recent items

You would have to clear the MRU registry key which is different for each program.

Yes, I know that for most applications but I can't seem to find the one for ISE

You will have to search. I doubt that most people even care about this. The MRU only lists the last N files for convenience.

Have you tried this:

$psise.Options.MruCount

The correct name for these aer "jump lists" and they can only be cleared by clearing all jump lists.

The data for individual jump lists is stored here:

$env:USERPROFILE\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Recent\AutomaticDestinations

Looks like I had to turn it off, then back on and it cleared it

Settings > Personalization > Start > "Show recently opened items in Jump Lists on Start or the taskbar"
