please?

BEasy to do. Go to menu, select resent watched, select each one to delete by holding down  either select button on fire stick or mouse until select check mark is displayed. Over on right top side, click on trash can. Gone. This is for deleting on Mobdro.

Hi Littlepete, most of us know how to do a one-by-one deletion, but the multi selection you are refering to did not work for me. Maybe it was too cryptic for me )-:

Yes please allow us to clear recents... This should be a VERY simple feature to produce. I may stop using Dropbox if this is not enabled. 

 

Agree 100%

Why does this issue show as Solved? Is that why it is still apparently being ignored by Dropbox after more than 2 years and 444 votes?

Wow!  It only took 2 years, 2 months, and 2 days, but it's finally here!!  Hide recents option has been added!  It's not very intuitive, but hey it's better than nothing!

At last, and well spotted Bliss G! I have just updated and tried it (on iOS) and it works!

same here! We can now at least hide the recents. Tested in iOS only so far. Thank you!
