I have an VSCode extension, and when someone tries to open the recent opened projects list, if he didn't used the extension to open any projects, it gives the user the following message:

It seems you didn't opened any project using Git Project Manager yet

And a user opened an issue asking if the correct way to write that message would be:

It seems you haven't opened any projects ...

Which one should I use?


The word "did" as an auxiliary always takes an infinitive, the present form of a verb.

So the phrase "didn't opened" is not correct; it should be "didn't open".

You can say either "It seems you didn't open....." or "It seems you haven't opened..........".
