Visual studio was asking me if I choose solution of invalid path from Recent Projects and Solution menu.
But from some point, it does not asking me anymore.
It just does nothing and solution with invalid path remains still.
I don't know what made this problem but it does not happened to vs 2013.

How can I revoke that message box show up when I choose invalid path from Recent Projects and Solution menu?

    Hello @Jay Kim,

    Welcome to Microsoft Q&A forum.

    If you right-click it, will you see the option like "Remove From List"? Try to click it to remove that invalid project.

    I tested with the latest version of VS 2022(17.10.3), but failed to reproduce this issue, the dialog appeared every time. Since no options control this behavior, please kindly try following:

    Repair VS(VS Installer => More => Repair) and reset VS settings(run devenv /ResetSettings in Developer Command Prompt for Visual Studio 2022).


    It seems that I misunderstood your description(the dialog appears when you open VS, on start page, directly click to open the recent project).

    I notice that you mentioned the "Recent Projects and Solution" menu(File > Recent Projects and Solutions). Yes, please check the ticket => File > Recent Project no longer offers to remove non-existing item that shared by @RLWA32
