currently it is not possible to assign hotkeys to the "File/Recent Documents/Clear List" menu item
just checked under Win8.1 x64 using LibO 184.108.40.206 and recent 220.127.116.11 alpha.
when confirmed please add this bug to meta bug 86899
I'll take this. The command exists - just needs to be added to the custom keyboard stuff.
once we can assign an hotkey it will improve Start Center UX
Go figure that this would be so hard. Un-assigning....the code is insane.
Joel had to give up... is this something you can handle?
@Jay - just a heads up that even Kohei said something like "oh yeah - I remember that dialog being overly complicated." It's not populated in a specific list, instead there is something within the dialog that calls on certain uno commands based on triggers that I can't figure out.
@Joel: From what i understand from tommy's request, he just wants the 'Clear List' (.uno:ClearRecentFileList) entry to be accessible to assign a shortcut key in Tools > Customize > Keyboard, so the code pointers seemed overkill for this.
From what i know, in order to get an uno command into the keyboard configuration dialog, is for it to have an entry in sfx2/sdi/sfx.sdi with AccelConfig = TRUE.
@Maxim: Am i correct?

There is no such commands. It's a fake entry used in the recent list to execute some custom action.

@Maxim: Yes the custom action seems to be at running vnd.org.libreoffice.recentdocs:ClearRecentFileList. Is this that much different than vnd.sun.star.findbar:FocusToFindbar found in the menubar?

No. The history is cleared one line above it. The purpose of vnd.org.libreoffice.recentdocs:ClearRecentFileList is to update the start center thumbnail view.

... which neither shows in the kb config dialog.

So those two commands need to be wrapped up in the new uno command
