Is there a way to clear the list of projects in the the File / Open Recent menu?

Is there a way to clear the list of projects in the the File / Open Recent menu? In the example below the menu lists projects that I have long since deleted, but also older versions of projects kept as a safety - ones that I certainly wouldn't want to accidentily re-open and start working on. I'd really like to reduce the clutter.

Hi Phil,

 

Resetting the preferences will clear the list. Here's how: https://community.adobe.com/t5/after-effects-discussions/faq-how-to-reset-trash-preferences-in-after-effects/td-p/10634342

But it'll also clear all your presets, custom keyboard shortcuts, or any other customization that you've done.

Hope it helps.

 

Thanks,

Nishu

Thanks, that worked. And I synced my prefs through the cloud first so I didn't lose them. But it's not a very elegant solution. It would be great to have a simple "Clear Recents" option in the "Open Recent" menu.
