Not adding to recent projects RRS feed

  • Question

  • User1510859543 posted

    We have a website application that is not showing up in the Recent Projects list.  I can select it using the File/Open website/File System but it does not show on the Recent Projects list after I close and reopen VS.  We are using Visual Studio 2010 Pro. Any ideas how I can get it to show on recent list? Thanks.

    Hi,

    Thanks for your feedback.

    Here are some suggestions:

    • Set the option TOOLS àOptions àEnvironment àStartup àAt startup to “Load last loaded solution”
    • Perhaps this is due to corrupted .suo file, see:  visual studio does not remember last opened files 
    • Open VS, and Run as Administrator, check whether it can fix it.

    Please let me know if you need any help.

    With regards,

    Angie

    When you open a website from your file system it does not have a project file, since it is not a project.  Therefore it will not show on the Recent Projects list.

    Do those ones have a project file or solution file in the folder?

    Hi,

      I can select it using the File/Open website/File System but it does not show on the Recent Projects list after I close and reopen VS.

    Try restarting Visual Studio (and even your local machine), and check whether it can fix it. Or you can try command below.

    Devenv.exe /SafeMode: It launches the IDE in safe mode loading minimal windows.

    With regards,

    Reboot and safemode did nothing different.  I have about 15 websites that I open from the same base network folder. Some of them show on the Recent Projects list and some do not. I would like to find out why some do not show after they have been opened.  Thanks.

    It appears to have been a corrupted .suo file. I deleted it and the .sln file, re-opened the website and closed it. When VS was opened again it was on the list.  Thanks!
