See More Recent Projects in Visual Studio

I usually only open between 5 and 10 Visual Studio projects on a regular basis, so I love the recent projects section of the Visual Studio Start Page. The problem is that when I add projects to my solutions they get added into the recent projects window and it makes it so I now have to go get my solution open from the file system. This irritates me quite a bit.

So for anyone who wants to increase the Recent Projects section of the Visual Studio Start Page from this.

RecentProjectsSmall

To this!

RecentProjectsLarge

Just open up the Tools menu item at the top select options and follow the instructions on this nice screen shot.

RecentlyUsedItemListMenu

And enjoy not digging into the file system to get to that solution file.
