Can you add a video showing the issue? and some steps to reproduce the issue…
We are unable to reproduce this bug.
Are you on MAC or Win? Does it happen with all documents?
You can add a video to WeTransfer/Dropbox etc and add a link here as comment.
Also, please confirm if your issue is similar to one mentioned here.. https://indesign.uservoice.com/forums/601180-adobe-indesign-bugs/suggestions/31964464-blending-effects

I am on the most recent update, and this issue is more than just drop shadow. It is any drop down menu / item where you have multiple choices. Whether it is Settings, Drop shadow, Transparency, PDF output, etc. anything that has a menu choice associated with it. A simple quit and restart of InDesign fixes it. I'm not sure why it does it in the first place, but as soon as I notice that I can't change things, I Quit and Restart InDesign and I'm back in business.
I agree, the recent items page should update, and beyond that, I should be able to manually remove items from the recents list or at the very least, clear the list.

I have and have had this same problem for the last several versions, since early last year. It seems to work while I have ID open, but when I open it the next day or so later, all time stamps are the same. Also, files I delete or move, are NOT removed from the recents list and there does not appear to be any way to clear or edit recents either. Consequently I am left with an ever increasing list of randomly organized files that includes ones that no longer exist. Sort by name works, but that's not what I'm looking for.
