Recent project templates

Visual Studio 2017 / Start Page / Recent project templates:
It's a nice idea to have a list of recent projects templates used but, as with recent solutions/projects, I'd like to be able to remove them from the list by right-clicking and selecting 'Remove' from the context menu.

    I was teaching my son how to use Visual Studio and I created a bunch of garbage projects. Now my start page is cluttered with these unwanted templates and I can't get rid of them.

    me too.
    i tried out some project templates for test only.
    and now all those rubbish templates i tested are sticking on the start page under
    "Recent project templates" and there is no chance to remove unwanted ones.

    I second this. I recently created a ".Net Standard" Class Library by mistake and now it's displayed on my Recent project templates list. I don't need to create that sort of project (probably ever).

    Alternatively, perhaps we could Pin selected project templates similar to the Recent > Pinned.

    I do like this Start Page version better than probably all of the predecessors!
