Did you sometimes get annoyed because you had lots of your workspaces and the eclipse IDE just showed last 5 of those workspaces in the recently opened workspace list? I would love to see at least ten or 15 of my recent workspace on that list because it saves my time browsing to that workspace location. There is a simple way to change the number of recently changed workspaces to show more workspaces. Here is how you do it.
- Open the folder: C:Program Files\IBM\SDP\configuration.settings
- Edit the file: ‘org.eclipse.ui.ide.prefs’
- Change MAX_RECENT_WORKSPACES to desired value.
