Steps to Reproduce:

I'm working in the smoke test repo (link)

  1. Use quick open Ctrl+P to open some files in node_modules folder (I just used index.js as it occurs a lot)
  2. Add in settings
"search.exclude": {
    "**/node_modules": true
  1. Use Ctrl+P type 'index.js'

The list of recent files still includes files located in /node_modules. I found a previous thread that says using Ctrl+K W will remove them, but excluding them in user settings should also apply to recently opened files without having to use a command to close/remove them.

@bpasero bpasero changed the title from Quick open includes recent files that are excluded in user settings to Apply excludes to editor history quick open too May 19, 2016

We should apply the excludes to the editor history too.

+1 on fixing this...


I was very committed to using VS Code (authored 3 plugins for apex development and contributed to a 4th) but I'm sad to say abandoning it for now...

This bug killing my productivity (even caused me to introduce a production bug) and there is no viable work around.

Once you open an search excluded file, it will always seem to pop-up ahead of search included files. Even, if I exclude the file from the project, it still shows up.

@ChuckJonas as a workaround there is a command "Clear Editor History" (removes all) and "Remove from Editor History" to remove an individual entry.
