Manage Recent Projects list in VS2005

It seems like an obvious thing to be able to do in Visual Studio 2005, but there is really no in-built way to manage items in the Recent Projects list on the Start Page. If you're like me, you end up with a bunch of project names from various things, with some duplicates even. It can rapidly become unwieldy to figure out what project you're actually trying to open. I did a little looking around and it seems the only way to actually manage items in that list is via the registry.

Go Start -> Run and type "regedit".

The keys you're looking for can be found in: HKCU\Software\Microsoft\VisualStudio\8.0\ProjectMRUList

Just delete the ones you no longer want and restart VS.
