Managing Recent Workspaces

Sometimes I have to abandon a workspace, especially if I’m using too many (see my previous post how many I have right now). But the workspace still shows up in the recent workspace list, even if the directory has been deleted. How can I get rid of an unwanted workspace? As always, there is a setting for this…

The setting is accessible under the menu Window > Preferences > General > Startup and Shutdown > Workspaces:

Managing Workspaces

 

Here I can remove a workspace from the list. The same settings page configures the number of workspaces to remember, and if eclipse is prompting for it at startup time.

Hint: If you are wondering, where these settings are stored, then see this blog post. It is inside that file: \configuration\.settings\org.eclipse.ui.ide.prefs

Happy Workspacing :-)
