Hi experts. This is my first post. Don't know what "create a poll" is.
I'm using the Dummies book on Beginning programming 3rd edition.
Downloaded Eclipse 32b and imported to Eclipse the book's website problems,
I was just exploring the workbench icons, menus, and other features, and messed it up enough to go back to "normal".
I'd like to recover the original appearence of the workbench or go back to the welcome window, but don't know how to do it. I don't want to write code right now, don't feel confident enough.
One radical solution would be to delete Eclipse and reload it, is this the only option? I appreciate your support.


Jorge

Jorge,

Perspectives have a "Reset" on their context menu to restore their
initial layout and stuff. Also the Preferences have Restore Defaults
button. If those aren't sufficient, you can start with a new workspace
or delete your existing workspace to create a new one.

Also, the first entry under Help is "Welcome" which should restore the
"Welcome screen", whenever you'd like.
