f you do a lot of tinkering in VS2005 and you want to clear down your recent projects list, this can be easily achieved by some simple registry editing

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\VisualStudio\8.0\ProjectMRUList

You will find a list of files in this area of the registry, simply delete the entries.

If you break the numbering you will need to renumber the entries after the one you have removed or the list will be truncated at that point.

Hope this helps you tidy up your recent projects
