Turning off app expose recent items in lion?

in macOS edited January 2014
Is it possible? Sometimes I do an in app expose hot corner gesture with colleagues around and I find it intrusive to my privacy that people can view whatever recent files I ve used, especially so in preview.

    I use the Secrets preference pane to have Recent Items turned off systemwide. I doubt it can be applied to only Exposé, though.

    thanks ts. I 've set to 0 recents on everything via system preferences, I 'll check my secrets prefs pane too. I just wish I could disable recents upon right or cmd click on the dock which is a privacy accident waiting to happen when you are using the mac with other people, and just have it inside the file open recent menu, as it should be.
