Clear Recent Opened Project List in Visual Studio .NET

Here is an nice tip on how to clear the "Recent Project" list in your Visual Studio .NET :

Close Visual Studio (if its open)

GOTO > Start > Run > RegEdit

GOTO > HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\VisualStudio\\ProjectMRUList
remove unnecessary items from list.

Similarly repeat the steps for FileMRuList
GOTO > HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\VisualStudio\\FileMRUList
remove unnecessary items from list.

To Clear the Find and Replace List
GOTO > HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\VisualStudio\\Find
remove unnecessary items from list.

Another Simple way is,
Create one Text file "Clear.txt" and add below contents in it

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00


Save and Close the file and rename is as "Clear.reg"; that is Registry file. Double Click to Run the file, this will clear the "Recent Project List" on your Visual Studio 2005 Startup Page. You can add entries for "Recent File List" and "Find and Replace List" in this same .reg file.
