I've been doing testing and now i have multiple items asking me to click them.
I only want the one.

How do I remove older items, backups, etc from the login list?

    If you are talking about the Open files list then I believe deleting no longer wanted data sets should remove these.

    If it is somewhere else you may need to elaborate further.

    Sjre I can delete these files, I was just wondering how to remove them from the list since they were in disparate folders;

    Take the ultra cautious approach and move them to a different folder to start with, give it some time and if you don't need them then delete.

    If your files are in non standard locations as mine are then you can edit the MD config.dict file to remove unwanted entries. the relevant line in my file is:-

    "external_files" = (
    "E:\\Money\\Ian Personal.moneydance"
        "E:\\Money\\Tsuga Ltd.moneydance"
        "E:\\Money\\Dubh Glas Ltd.moneydance" )

    As always backup, backup, backup before you try - both your data files & config.dict itself - & be careful!

    FYI. Toolbox extension v2 (just released) can do this for you in hacker mode.
