Deleted files persist in the 'Open Recent' menu


Recommended Posts

Unless there is the good reason to the contrary, I would like to suggest that deleted items are removed from the 'Open Recent' menu. Once an item from that menu is attempted to be opened, and paint.net see that the file no longer exist (deleted or moved), it should be removed from the list.

 

Thanks for your consideration.

Yes, there's a good reason. It's bad to spin up file I/O in cases like this just to check if the file is still there. What if files were on network shares or something that takes a long time to access? What if that network share no longer exists? Now it takes 4 minutes to open up the Open Recent menu, as each non-existent network file incurs a 30 second timeout delay (or more probably).

My understanding of

 

>> Once an item from that menu is attempted to be opened

 

is that you first have to click the item. In this case Paint.NET has to check whether the file exists or not. There is no additional delay.

Exactly. This is how the MRU lists in Windows works. You click on a file, and it will say something like "This file can not be found. Would you like to remove it from the list?"
