Rename items in "Recent" list on Start Page
At my company, I can be working in different source branches at the same time, meaning I can have a list of many different recent projects on the Start Page. However, since all the solution files are named the same (just in different branches), I have to hover over each item in the list to see where it is physically located to determine which one I need to open.
If we had the ability to rename the entries in the "Recent" list, I could give each item a name that tells me which branch that specific solution is in.
It's a small thing, I know, and doesn't really impact productivity. But it is a quality of life thing and I think it would be an awesome addition.

Where I work we use the Rename VS window title extension to rename the title bar with it's TFS branch name. I would love to be able to have my recent list match.
Bump after 3 years.
Agreed, but no need to rename manually. Just change the list so that X number of folder levels are also directly visible in the list.

I Agree with James
We know how is current solution for this, alter the ProjectMRUList in the registry, but is better if we can do this directly from VS UI.
