Please read and understand this thread before posting a response.

Every time I go to export a .jar file (Eclipse > Export > Launch Config), the launch config window pops up with EVERY SINGLE project I have ever written in Eclipse - most of the files have been deleted for a long time !
(Run > Debug Config) does not show the dead files
It's getting frustrating having to sift through 60+ useless listings trying to figure out which "Main" belongs to my current project.

How do I get rid of the dead files from the launch config window ?
Better yet, how to I auto compile my current project without having to choose main method ?

Thank you in advance.

You are asking us to try and understand something that doesn't make
sense. The Export->Launch Config dialog is not used to export .jar
files. It is used to export Launch Configs that exist in your workspace.

You don't specify which files have been deleted for a long time. If you
have deleted .java files, then you most likely have left the launch
configs used to run the .java files in your workspace. You can remove
Launch Configs from the Run->Run Configurations dialog where they are
defined.
