I have been in the situations where I end up having lots of unwanted project items in the “Recent Projects” pan in Visual Studio startup page. If you ever wanted to clear the list, read further and follow following steps.
- Make sure you visual studio is closed.
- Run the Registry Editor by using Start->Run->RegEdit
- For Visual Studio 2005, drill down to the HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\VisualStudio\8.0\ProjectMRUList and remove unwanted items.
- For Visual Studio 2008, drill down to the HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\VisualStudio\9.0\ProjectMRUList and remove unwanted items.
Hope this helps to clean the Visual Studio environment.
