# ~/.atom/keymap.cson'atom-workspace':'cmd-b': 'recent-files-fuzzy-finder:toggle-finder'
You can also clear closed files from the list by calling the command

'atom-workspace':'ctrl-tab': 'recent-files-fuzzy-finder:toggle-finder''ctrl-tab ^ctrl': 'unset!''.recent-files-fuzzy-finder':'ctrl-tab': 'recent-files-fuzzy-finder:select-next-item''ctrl-escape': 'recent-files-fuzzy-finder:toggle-finder''^ctrl': 'recent-files-fuzzy-finder:confirm-selection'
apm install recent-files-fuzzy-finder in a terminal.
