I suggest you ...

show the full path as a tooltip in 'Recent Projects and Solutions' menu

I sometimes have copies of the same solution. When opening a solution via the 'Recent Projects and Soultions' menu under 'File', the full path is not shown, so I often open the wrong one. Show a tool tip with the full path when I hover over an entry.

    Thanks for taking the time to share this suggestion. This item has been around for a couple of versions of Visual Studio and we haven’t acted on it. Looking at the VS “15” plans, we’re not going to take action on this item, so we’re going to close it. If the suggestion is still relevant, please either take a look to see if there’s another suggestion that’s similar that you can vote on, or open a new suggestion.

        Very annoying. The tool tip worked fine in VS2010. Now it disappeared in VS1015 and I have to waste a few seconds EVERY time I open a solution. Not a huge deal but an irritant.

        This annoyance has happened to me too, too many times. A tooltip would work, or simply making the submenu wider would too.
