Remove Project From Launcher Without Deleting

Hey all,

Trying to clean up my launcher library without deleting the projects from my hard drive when I remove them.

Is there some sort of .ini file I can edit to make the epic launcher forget certain projects?

See tmeks answer in this thread

@tmeks solved this problem as follows. This only affects the Engine once launched (open project) it does not change the list that show in your library.

Open the file at:

%localappdata%\UnrealEngine\4.9\Saved\Config\Windows\EditorSettings.ini

You’ll see some entries like this:

RecentlyOpenedProjectFiles=C:/Users/[YourUserName]/Documents/Unreal
``Projects/MyProject/MyProject.uproject

Just remove the line with the path to the project you don’t want to show up, save and restart the UE4 Launcher. That project should no longer appear under “My Projects”. (Until you open it again)

(You probably want to replace 4.9 in the path above with the most recent version number)
