We have a website application that is not showing up in the Recent Projects list. I can select it using the File/Open website/File System but it does not show on the Recent Projects list after I close and reopen VS. We are using Visual Studio 2010 Pro.
Any ideas how I can get it to show on recent list? Thanks.

When you open a website from your file system it does not have a project file, since it is not a project. Therefore it will not show on the Recent Projects list.

And yet I have 6 others just like it that do show up???

Do those ones have a project file or solution file in the folder?

Try restarting Visual Studio (and even your local machine), and check whether it can fix it. Or you can try command below.
Devenv.exe /SafeMode: It launches the IDE in safe mode loading minimal windows.

Reboot and safemode did nothing different. I have about 15 websites that I open from the same base network folder. Some of them show on the Recent Projects list and some do not. I would like to find out why some do not show after they have been opened.

It appears to have been a corrupted .suo file. I deleted it and the .sln file, re-opened the website and closed it. When VS was opened again it was on the list. Thanks!
