    In Jump for OSX, you can click the eye icon for a quick connect. The host field has a list of recently connected machines.

    Actually that list shows the recent connections that you have entered in the quick connect and add new connection window. It is not related to the list of recent connections. Hence when you clear recent connections it does not effect this list.

    Can you please elaborate a little more that why do you need this feature? It will help us come up with a better solution.

    I have 2 hosts that I have quick connected to previously that have since been decommissioned. I do not need to connect to them again. However, they are still in the quick connect "list" and the name populates when I begin typing a new host. I used quick connect because I had no reason to save the connection information yet it still lingers around because the quick connect recent list does not have a clear function. Thanks for your time!

    John, I am sorry, currently we do not have a way to clear the quick connect and add new connection list. Jump Desktop for Mac stores 15 addresses at most. New addresses push out the old one.

    Interesting use case. Thanks for sharing it. If few more users demand for it we will implement it.

    This is a feature I'd like to see added. As we add and subtract VMs at work, my Quick Connect list becomes quite cluttered. As John Prush mentioned, it's certainly feasible that machines come and go, especially in QA and development environments. I suppose the user story for this would be, "As a user, I would like a way to clear the Quick Connect list so that I can remove machines and IP addresses for computers that are no longer in operation." This would also count if you change jobs, work as a consultant, etc.

    Is there a plist or some other place where we can manually clear it for now?

    Thanks Greg for sharing your feedback. We will implement it in our next release.

    Sure you can, though I will not recommend it. Please make sure you create backup of the file before you edit it.

    Jump for Mac stores the list of recent addresses in a plist file. It is present at these locations

    ~/Library/Preferences/com.p5sys.jump.mac.viewer.plist

    and

    ~/Library/Containers/com.p5sys.jump.mac.viewer/Data/Library/Preferences/com.p5sys.jump.mac.viewer.plist

    Open these files and remove contents of this list

    recentComputerAddresses

    It should clear the list of recent addresses.

    Let me know if you face any problem.
