Start in new session by default when selected from drop down list

I find the ability to switch between projects using the drop down menu at the top right convenient. Yet more often than not, I want to start the project in a new session. I know I can go File > Open Project in New Session and navigate to the .Rproj file, but is it possible for this process to be accessible via the drop-down menu instead? First, the project I want to start is there (because I used it recently); and second, sometimes I forget that this process ends my current session (where I might have unsaved objects that took a while to produce).

If this is not currently possible, perhaps this could best be configured as a global option to make a selection the drop-down menu trigger a new session?
