        I would love this feature to filter recent solutions by the solution filename.
        Since I've started using the "Pinned" feature, it has reduced about half the number of times I would have liked to filter the Recent list. But having a filter would make me more productive.

        Yes We need search box in Visual studio to search for recent projects. More sugar - display icons based on project type for each solution listed in recent projects
