Default A button suggestion for the startup Choose Project(s) (prompt window).

Hello,
Its my first post, i want to thank everyone here for asking and answering.
I have been using Reaper for some months and it feels like there is a button missing that would open a file explorer/finder
(in order to open another project which is not included in the "recent projects" list).

As it is now, you have to close the Chouse Project(s) window and then go to file -> open project

So my suggestion is to add a button at the prompt screen named "open project" that will open a file explorer/finder.
(i know that this can be set from the preferences but with this way you have both functionalities in one window and skipping a couple of clicks!)

This is exactly plus more of what i was looking for , so many thanx!
My only note is i would still want to get prompted to save ,
having selected the "New Project" button but
instead it just opens a new project which is great in terms of speed and simplicity.
But for safety (data loss prevention) ,
the "Save Project" window should open before presenting the main screen.
So you could have a check box "(x) prompt for save" option or have it by default.
A thousand thanx's nonetheless! This is a great solution!

It's already possible to enable this behavior via Preferences > Project: Prompt to save on new project.

But I'll also add this to the wishlist and will have a look if it makes sense to add the same option directly in ReaLauncher, as well.

Can you please post more details and screenshots (which show the list entries in the ReaLauncher [Recent Projects]-Tab and in the 'File > Recent Projects' menu) into the ReaLauncher discussion thread. Thanks.

An option to clear the Recent Projects Tab is already on the wishlist (see post #2 in the ReaLauncher thread)
