Clear/Remove Items from the "Recent" list on HTC EVO Design 4G

http://androidforums.com – When I hold down the Home key for a few seconds, a screen opens, overlays whatever is on the screen, and shows icons of the most recently used apps and utilities. Is there a way to clear this list, to remove specific items from the list, or disable the "Recent" function altogether? The menu button doesnt work on this screen, so there is no option to clear or delete from the list. (General)
