I was trying to use VIM and it kept blinking "recording" all the time. Now I know that it means VIM was recording what I was typing. Where does it keep these recordings? I would like to delete these.
The "recording" label usually appears when you press 'q' key to record a macro. It is not recording what you are typing, it is recording a command sequence to be re-used for later use.
The recordings are stored in the named buffers. You can place the buffer contents into a file as text, save the file, and reload the text into a buffer in another session. You can use the same technique to clean up the recorded macro. Insert the buffer as text, edit the text, re-save the text into the same buffer.
