Remove Recent Projects from the right-click menu in the dock (Mac)

Take a look at the screenshot below.

I want to remove and/or rename some of the recent projects on this menu. You can find this menu by hovering over the PhpStorm icon in the dock and right clicking on it, then going to 'Recent projects'. Is this possible?

Hi there,

It should be the same list as you would normally see on Welcome screen (e.g. when no projects are opened) or in "File | Reopen Project" list. From Welcome screen you can delete any project by using Delete key (Backspace on Mac?) or by clicking on "x" if using 9.5 EAP build.

It uses the same names as actual projects .. which you can rename via "File | Rename Project..."

I'm on Windows .. but it should work exactly the same across all platforms.

Cheers for the reply Andriy.

What I ended up doing was to clear the 'Recent projects' list (File, Open Recent, Clear List). Then I opened to projects that I wanted to see in the list in the order I want them. Everything seems to be working fine now.

Thanks for your help!
