Typically, Eclipse is launched via a shortcut (in Windows), a panel
launcher (in a Linux GUI) or whatever Mac guys call theirs (I'm not a
completely idiot, though almost, I just don't remember off the top of my
head: my wife uses a Mac, but I do not).
I think you're running Windows. So, typically you launch by clicking
your shortcut, probably on the taskbar. Eclipse comes up and offers to
open the most recently opened workspace unless at one point you told it
always to open some workspace by default.
You never need to worry about where you are because Eclipse works
relative to a) a workspace and b) wherever your projects are, which by
default is in a workspace, but I always tell it to leave my project
source code and resources wherever I happen to put them which is almost
never in an actual workspace. This is an open of the New Project and
The URL you post is only about wiring up ADT to Eclipse. It's not about
Eclipse development habits. You have to marry the two and Mr. Smiling
Ofer thinks you already know that. This is why following Lars' tutorial
will teach you a great deal though it * * might * * be a little old. If
it still works, and it's probably been updated, it will help you a lot.
