Removing Modules from a Project

You can remove unnecessary modules from your project. However, the files and folders that make up the corresponding modules are not physically deleted. Thus, the modules you have removed from a project can later be added to the same or a different project.

To remove a module, you can use the Project tool window or the Project Structure dialog.

Removing a module in the Project tool window

  1. Open the Project tool window (e.g. View | Tool Windows | Project ).
  2. Select the module to be removed.
  3. Do one of the following:
    • Select Remove Module from the context menu.
    • Select Edit | Remove Module.
    • Press Delete.

Removing a module in the Project Structure dialog

  1. Open the Project Structure dialog (e.g. Ctrl+Shift+Alt+S).
  2. In the left-hand pane, under Project Settings, select Modules.
  3. In the pane to the right, select the module to be removed.
  4. Do one of the following:
    • Click delete.
    • Select Delete from the context menu.
    • Press Delete.
  5. Click OK in the Project Structure dialog.
