    I was wondering if there's a way to clear the recently opened projects in the new Project Wizard? This is because I'll be giving a demonstration soon and I do not want to reveal some project names where I'm working on.

    Thanks in advance!

    While there is no supported function to clear this, you could just move those project folders to a different location before starting up unity. When unity won't find a recently opened project in the same path, it will clear it from the list.

    On Mac you can open:
    /Users/<yourUserName>/Library/Preferences/com.unity3d.UnityEditor.plist
    and remove the RecentlyUsedProjectPaths-x keys.

    Thanks for the tips. I tried both options, but I was not sure which exact parts to remove in the plist file. However it is for sure the file to edit. I tried the approach from Jonas, which works fluently. Thanks again!

    Thanks for the tip. It worked fine.
    Actually this is the better way than always changing the path of your projects.

    I was able to clear it in a Windows machine by clearing the value of:

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Unity Technologies\Unity Editor 3.x\kProjectBasePath

    with regedit.

    For the most recent version, I was able to remove individual entries in Windows by navigating regedit to:

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Unity Technologies\Unity Editor 4.x
    and scrolling down to the entries at "RecentlyUsedProjectPaths-..."

    I'm NOT about to go deleting shared repositories because I accidentally opened the wrong project file. There needs to be a button for this.

    I also used the SharpDevelop to make the small program to remove the recent project list for Unity 5.x. The source code is also provided in the zip file. Free to use and let me know if there are any problems. Thanks.

    This post was added in 2009. Seven years later, still no simple feature as to just right click then remove from project list. xD...

    I just tried this and the entries got re-populated when I re-opened Unity (2017.3.1p2). Is this list being stored/cached somewhere else?
