In the subdirectory where the Eclipse executable lives, you can
carefully edit configuration/.settings/org.eclipse.ui.ide.prefs.

Look for RECENT_WORKSPACES. The list is newline-delimited.

This should not happen often. It's been years since I found the need to
edit this list and I had to look around to remember how to do it.

Excellent. There's always a right way to do things. I'll add this to my
notes for the next time.

Hello,

I am totally new to Eclipse and Eclipse-Indigo. Where do I find "General > Startup and Shutdown > Workspaces preference page"? I need step-by-step directions. Thank you in advance.
