How to change the default Eclipse startup workspace?

After installing eclipse and opening for the first time, I had specified a workspace and selected the checkbox, which says, 'use this as default workspace'.

From then, when I was opening eclipse, it doesn't ask for workspace and loads the default workspace which I had specified before. I want to change this default workspace.

I don't want it to open the workspace, and then to switch to the one I need. How can I change the default workspace?


  • Uncheck this and apply your changes-

    Windows Preferences->General->Start up and Shut down->Workspaces->Check Prompt For workspace on start up

  • Apply and OK

  • Close the eclipse.

  • Open eclipse

  • Give your new workspace path and choose it as default.
