In QGIS 3 Welcome page when I right click a project a tiny context menu with 'pin to list' rsp. 'unpin from list' as first entry appears.

'pin to list' produces a little pin near the project name and 'unpin from list' removes the pin:

I consulted the documentation but I could not figure out the deeper sense of these pins.

Does somebody know what these pins are for? Perhaps some kind of favourite projects?

Pin To List will add the project to the top of the Recent Projects list. This list appears when you start QGIS or in the menu Project > Open Recent. Your pinned projects will appear at the top of the list, allowing you to easily access them.
