Sometimes it is all about knowing the simple tricks, even if they might be obvious ;-). In my post “Eclipse Performance Improvement Tip: Close Unused Projects” I explained why it is important to close the ‘not used’ projects in the workspace to improve Eclipse performance:

To open the projects (or the selected projects), the ‘Open Project’ context menu (or menu Project > Open Project can be used:

Open Project Context Menu

Open Project Context Menu

An even easier way (and this might not be obvious!) is simply to double-click on the closed project folder:

Double Click on the Closed Project to Open it

Double Click on the Closed Project to Open it

That’s it! It will open the project which much easier, simpler and faster than using the menu or context menu. Unfortunately I’m not aware of a similar trick to close it. Anyone?

Happy Opening :-)
