I've no Windows 7 here right now, but I would do it like this way: create a document with an unique name. e.g. foobar_458293834231.txt and search in the registry (win + r → "regedit") with F3 for the pattern. You will find a key value "recently open", or similar.

The keys are not, as you already mentioned it, stored in the registry of Windows. My Fault.

I've found the program JumpListExtender very useful for your case. You can modify the Recent Open, the Pinned Items and the Jump List itself.
