Samsung Galaxy S7 How to clear file history preview in “My documents”

If you open on the Samsung Galaxy S7 the File Explorer "My Documents", then you can very easily navigate with this in the directories of your smartphone to open, copy, move and delete files.

If your files are images, videos or documents, they will be stored in a file history and are seen in the overview in a small preview. This file history is displayed to you on the Samsung Galaxy S7 when opening the "My Documents".

Under the title "Recent files" you can as quickly regain access to the opened images, videos, etc. If you don’t like that you can see which files you have opened with the app "My Documents", then you can clear the file history.
