I am running Eclipse on Windows OS.
I copied a fully workable project tree from another machine lo local dir,
started Eclipse,
chose Switch Workplace to open a desired project.
The result is empty Project Explorer.
Not clear how / where to go from here as Eclipse IDE does not seem to offer options at this state (cannot even open a path to project).
What should be there right next step?

A project directory can't be used as a workspace, and a new workspace doesn't automatically use directories within its location as projects. You'll have to use the Existing Projects import wizard from the File menu.
