Unable to delete recent projects

Unable to delete projects from the recent projects list. even when i highlight them and use either the delete key or the backspace key. How can I delete them from the list. I even exit and reboot and they are still there.

Do this.

Thank you - I figured out that the “stage” screen was different from the recent project screen. I had to open the recent project screen to delete the projects. Your way works too. Thanks ")
