IntelliJ IDEA 14.1.0 Help

Welcome Screen


IntelliJ IDEA displays the Welcome screen, when no project is opened. From this screen, you can quickly access the major starting points of IntelliJ IDEA. Welcome screen appears, when you close the current project in the only instance of IntelliJ IDEA. If you are working with multiple projects, closing a project results in closing the IntelliJ IDEA window, in which it was running, except for the last one.

Welcome screen is divided into the following sections: Quick Start, and Recent Projects.


Recent Projects

If appropriate, the left-hand pane shows a list of projects you've been recently working with. Click a project to reopen it.

To find a project of interest, start typing its name.


To delete a recent project from the list, follow these steps:

  1. Use the Tab key to move focus into the list of Recent projects.
  2. Use arrows keys to select the project you'd like to remove, or find it, as shows above.
  3. Click Delete button close1.
  4. Confirm removing in the Remove Recent Project dialog.

Quick start

Use the links of this section to create a new project , open an existing project, or check out a project from version control.

Also, use the Configure link to configure your working environment and default project, and Get Help link to open help topics, tips of the day, and default keymap document.
