Quick question! Does anyone knows if there is a way to access through script the After Effects > File > Open Recent > List of last opened projects?
And store the list of recent projects in an Array?
And also, if this is possible, is there a way to reset the current list to set it back to the one stored in this array?
Thank you all as always!

I think all that most-recently-used info is stored in one of the prefs files. You can probably access it using the (undocumented?) app.preferences methods, but I’d be wary of changing it.

The Prefs File has sections, and for me correct section seemed to be “Most Recently Used (MRU) Search v2”
alert(app.preferences.getPrefAsString("Most Recently Used (MRU) Search v2","MRU Project Path ID # 1, File Path", PREFType.PREF_Type_MACHINE_SPECIFIC))
