Tired of your projects getting pushed out of the Recent Projects list on the Start Page?  Well we have a feature for you!  You can now pin projects to the Recent Projects list so they don't leave but, instead, hang around until you unpin them.

  • Cool.  Does this also pin them to the recent menu by any chance?

  • While small, this is a great addition so you don't lose your main projects when you work on a bunch of others out of the blue.

    I also like being able to right-click and remove items from the recent list. (With VS2008 you have to edit the registry to do that.)

  • If you're on Win7, you can do better: pin VS to the taskbar, and then pin your favorire projects, so you can just right-click on the TaskBar icon, the click on the pinned project.

  • Fabulous, the same should apply to all products, e.g. MS Office!

  • Nice. I didn't even notice this cause I always fly by the start up page.

    Found you from Scott Guthrie's blog. You probably saw it already, but check it out if you didn't:

  • This is a great tip.  Never knew it could be done until I read this.
