Hi, so I know there is so much thing as "uninstalling eclipse" but when I followed a tutorial on how to remove it, it worked fine. However when I reinstalled it, I still had all my old projects and classes saved.
How can I completely remove all old projects/classes?
Please can someone explain in a simplified and easy manner.
Thank you in advance! Very Happy

The installation and the workspace it uses are two separate things. Just deleting the installation doesn't delete any of the workspaces. So if you've been using the default workspace location, every new installation will open that one by default. You'll see there is File -> Switch Workspace to switch to another workspace. By default you're also prompted which workspace to open when you start the installation...
