  1. Go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER/Software/Microsoft/Windows
    /CurrentVersion/Explorer/RunMRU on left browse panel
  2. One you click on RunMRU folder, on right side you will find entries for the Most recently used command in Run box.

You can now, delete the unwanted entries, add some of your own or just play around with it.
