Visual Basic Open Project / Recent list...

This may be a trite question, but does _anybody_ know how to either remove or limit the entries to the visual basic Recent Project list upon startup?  Once there are 20 or so projects in the list, it pretty much is impossible to use it efficiently.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

If you are brave enough you can delete them out of your registry.  They are located at:
 HKEY_CURRENT_USER\software\Microsoft\Visual Basic\6.0\RecentFiles

If you are not using version 6.0 then replace the 6.0 in the above path with the version number being used, i.e., 5.0.
