If they are labelled as MRU (Most recently used) you may want to keep the. They are basically shortcuts within Windows that tell you the last files you opened in a program. In Word or Excel for example if you go to the File menu there is a list at the bottom of the last 4 files you opened. This can be very useful if you regularly use the same files at work.
