Hello there. I have been learning Java and recently have begun using the eclipse IDE, and just love it. Looking thru the IDE I am going nuts trying to find a particular setting and was wondering if anybody knows where it might be located if it even exists. Basically everytime I create a new project and when I shut down and restart eclipse it loads or attempts to load the last project, workspace, whatever. I just want the IDE to come up with no project loaded everytime I start it. Thanks.

It's called workspace, and it is a container of projects; concretely it is a folder where Eclipse puts hidden configuration files, including almost all user preferences, and it doesn't necessarily contain project folders.

Eclipse doesn't run without a workspace: on startup it either reloads the last one (the default) or asks you which past or new workspace it should open. see Window > Preferences > General > Startup and Shutdown > "Prompt for workspace at startup". You can run multiple instances of Eclipse with different workspaces.

I suggest setting up a single workspace with your options and then create, "remove" (forget from the workspace) and "import" back many little projects; multiple workspaces are for special needs.

Yeah, that's what I've been doing? So I guess in eclipse the workspace is king. Removing and importing projects in and out is a small price to pay for using such a great IDE. Thanks.
