If you are an Advanced User who has priviledges to edit Registry here you go.

Method 1:

          Close Visual Studio (if its open)

Start > Run > RegEdit

(Backup registry before making changes)

GOTO

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\VisualStudio\<version>\ProjectMRUList

remove unnecessary items from list.

Similarly repeat the steps for FileMRuList

Method 2:

If you can’t edit registry or not feeling comfortable here is an alternate method.
