Importing a project into IntelliJ IDEA

When you open IntelliJ IDEA and don’t already have a project open, you’ll see the Welcome Screen. From the Welcome Screen you have several options. You can create a new project, open an existing project or get a project from VCS.

If you’re new to IntelliJ IDEA and haven’t opened any projects yet, the Welcome Screen will look like this. Welcome Screen - New

If you’ve already opened projects in IntelliJ IDEA before, you’ll have a list of recent projects in your Welcome Screen. Click any of these projects to open them. Welcome Screen - Recent projects
