For my workflow and code structure, it's very helpful to be able to close and reopen Eclipse projects fairly regularly. One problem I have however is that when I close a project, it doesn't remember which files were open, so when I reopen the project, it's just an empty screen.

Is there any way to set eclipse to reopen the files that were open when I closed a project, when I reopen it?

Maybe using Mylin? – Daniel Beck Nov 10 '11 at 17:23
I've only just starting using eclipse about two months ago, and mine always reopens my files. It saves the state of the workspace. Are you using a workspace? – xdumaine Nov 10 '11 at 21:19
I'm using a workspace, but the projects are not in the default directory, I manually specified their location at project creation time. – dimo414 Nov 10 '11 at 22:27
