How to remove project in PyCharm?

If I'm closing a project and then just delete the project folder, after PyCharm restarts an empty project folder is created again.


Just follow these steps in order. They assume you currently have the project open in a PyCharm window:

  1. Close your project by clicking on File -> Close Project
  2. Locate your project in the PyCharm file directory
  3. Delete your project's directory

I agree that PyCharm's handling of what should be a very simple procedure is crappy. Maybe this will be improved in the future?
