Eclipse Tweak: Show more ‘recent workspaces’

I like to keep my projects categorized into various workspaces when working with eclipse. This help me keep my work organized and keeps eclipse from indexing all the stuff at once. Also, this way it takes less toll on my RAM.

Problem

Whenever you open eclipse, it greets you with a welcome screen, where you can choose which workspace you’ll be working with. This is basically a drop-down having a list of 5 recently opened workspaces. The problem is that this list just contains 5 workspaces. What if you work with more than 5 workspaces at a time?

Solution

  1. Go to %ECLIPSE_HOME%/configuration/.settings
  2. Open org.eclipse.ui.ide.prefs in an editor, say notepad
  3. Set, MAX_RECENT_WORKSPACES to the number of workspaces you are currently working with.
