VS.NET: Edit "recent files" list

I hope this is the right NG, please notify me if not.

I have got a problem with the "recent files" list of the start page in
VS.NET: yesterday I created a new projekt which has the same name as an
already existing project stored at another location.
Unfortunately, VS.NET doesn't seem to support double names in the
"recent files" list: only /one/ entry with the double name is listed and
even more unfortunate, it is the one which I don't need, i.e. the older one.

How can I manually manipulate the project paths of that list so the the
project is the one /I/ want not the one VS.NET wants?

The recent project list is generated from the folders inside of:
C:\Documents and Settings\yourProfileName\My Documents\Visual Studio
Projects.

The folders here are nothing but shortcuts for the recent project list. You
can feel free to delete folders that you don't want on the recent list.

Thanks a lot.
Unfortunately I screwd it up: Usually I use this folder to store my
projects in so I cannot simply delete the folders inside as they are no
links.
The project which is not shown in that list is indeed stored elsewhere.
I tried to place a link to that folder in the "Visual Studio Projects"
folder but it didn't appear in the list.
I'll just fool around a bit, perhaps I get it to work after all.

Just make a new project of the same type in a new location, then import the
old project's files into the new project. Then delete the original project
folder.

And, do yourself a favor, don't store your projects in the shortcut folders.

Wasn't needed: after I rebooted the PC the entry showed up.

I don't really see why not. VS.NET made me do this, that wasn't my
initiative and for once I comply to what VS.NET offers me. Anyway, I
would store my projects in a very similar structre else so there is no
reason to change the folder.

VS .NET does not suggest the My Documents\Visual Studio Projects folder for
ASP.NET and ASP.NET Web Service projects. Because of this, you need to get
used to your projects not being stored all in the same general place. I
also think that as you develop more and more with VS .NET, you'll find ample
reasons not to store your project in the suggested location, but rather,
you'll find storing them in more appropriate locations works better for
multi-project solutions.
