I wish there were some means of tracking favorite projects in Visual Studio
I'm a developer for an insurance company, and I basically have two kinds of projects I work on. The first kind are recurring services that I have to go into several times a week. The other are one-off projects I may work on for several days, but then seldom have to open again. But I do so many of the latter that it can be hard to find the former. If there were something like a favorites menu whose contents I could control, it would make it much easier to zero in the recurring processes when I need to get to them.
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.

Favorite Documents extension lets you add solutions (and other files) to the Favorites menu:

you should open Solutions only by double-click in Window-Explorer - never open VS directly.
Then you can organize your Solution-Folders as you need.
Furthermore you can create a "Favourite-Directory", and copy Links(Explorer:create shortcut) to it.

Some sort of "pinning" type feature in the favorites list would be an option. The Office products have a similar feature under their "Recent" list which allows you to pin documents you reference frequently.
