Hi, I am very new to Eclipse and learning JAVA. After a few classes of practice, I exited the IDE platform. When i am ready to get back in, I realized that i could not find the ICON, or program file anywhere on my computer. Please help! I am very lost. Thank you.

Hmmm... and you failed to state what platform/OS you're working on so
it's anyone's guess as how to help you.

If you are desperate to "search whole file system" you'd look for
"eclipse.exe" on windows" and "eclipse" (executable file) on Linux or Mac.

If you downloaded a zip or tar file and simply unzipped it "in place"
the default is it'd put everything in a folder (where the zip or tar
file is) named "eclipse".

HTH
