Why no recent project?

How can I find the recent projects? In VS 2022, the recent project is missing.

I tried repairing VS and no help.

    Hi @liling

    Welcome to Microsoft Q&A! 

    Do you mean that you cannot find the recent projects after launching VS? Are you using the latest version of VS2022? If not, please update it with Visual Studio Installer. 

    Please try to clear your user data: run devenv.exe /resetuserdata in Developer Command Prompt for VS 2022. And if you have third-party extensions installed, please temporarily disable or uninstall them under Extensions > Manage Extensions > Installed

    Besides, please check the following:

    1. Run you Registry Editor as administrator
    2. Open the following key:


    1. find the ‘NoRecentDocsHistory’ value
    2. Double-click on it to Change the value data from 1 to 0.
    3. re-launch your VS and check if the recent projects show or not.
