    Hello All, :)
    As I'm very new to Game Maker Studio 2, I create lots of temporary / test projects to experiment.

    The thing is that now when I open GMS2 my recent projects is flooded with many "tests" that even I can't follow with all the weird names I gave.
    Just to be clear, my naming for each project are not the same and trying to help me recognize what it is, but that's not the only reason, it's just nicer to have a cleaner fresh start of list while I can always browse manually and open older projects. after all this list is dedicated for my recent projects.

    My question:
    Is there a secret "Clean Recent Projects" button somewhere built-in GMS2 that I can click from time to time to keep things more organized? maybe I missed it.

    If not... is there a plan to add such feature because it's something that may be helpful not just for me but for many others as well. maybe a nice button next to the Recent Projects text? (just a suggestion).

    Thanks ahead and sorry about my bad English.

    You can submit a report with your suggestion.

    To clear recent projects on Windows delete this file: %AppData%/GameMakerStudio2/<your-account>/recent_projects
