Clearing Recently Used Files and Projects from Visual Studio 2015

In previous releases of the Visual Studio Productivity Power Tools, you could easily Clear your Recent Files as well as Clear your Recent Projects.

Unfortunately, with the latest release of Visual Studio Productivity Power Tools for Visual Studio 2015, this is no longer possible!

Unfortunately, there does not appear to be a replacement Visual Studio 2015 Extension (yet) which can resolve this problem for you, however, you can use this handy dandy PowerShell script to take care of it for you!!

$VisualStudio2015MRUKey = "HKCU\Software\Microsoft\VisualStudio\14.0\MRUItems"
Remove-Item -Path Registry::$VisualStudio2015MRUKey -Recurse -Force
After running this script and launching Visual Studio 2015, all of your Recent Files and Projects should be removed from the Start Page and from your Recent Files and Recent Projects menus!!
