I switched laptops, installed eclipse, GitHub and git.
I think I made the ssh connection ok with Github.
and now every time I git push my project a window pops up asking me my GitHub username and password. since now you can only use token GitHub password, i need the token id instead of password, but the problem is it keeps asking that everytime i push never mind what project.

I don't understand what you are writing.

For an SSH connection, EGit might ask about the passphrase of your encrypted private key. That passphrase most likely is not a Github token.

Did you also copy the content of the .ssh directory from your old computer?

For an HTTPS connection, EGit might indeed ask for the password. For Github just enter the token. There should also be an option to store it in the Eclipse secure store.

There are options in the global "Version Control (Team)->Git" preference page, in the "Secure Store" group, controlling that behavior.
