Project Structure

Use this pane to configure content roots for each of the projects opened in the same window.

Configure content roots

ItemTooltipDescription
root_Source.png Sources Mark a folder as a source root. Such folder displays in the list of source roots.

The files under the source roots are interpreted according to their type. PyCharm Edu can parse, inspect, index, and compile the contents of these roots.

This command is duplicated on the context menu of a content root.

root Excluded Excluded Mark a folder as an excluded root.

Excluded roots are not visible to PyCharm Edu. Usually, one would like to exclude temporary build folders, generated output, logs, and other project output. Excluding the unnecessary paths is a good way to significantly improve performance.

This command is duplicated on the context menu of a content root.

Add/remove content roots

ItemTooltipDescription

rootRemove Remove Content Entry Delete selected content root from the project.
