You can filter the Project Explorer
view to hide projects, folders, or files that you do not want to see.
To enable or disable filters, complete the following steps:
- Open the Select Common Navigator Filters window by selecting Customize
View... from the drop-down menu at the top right corner of the
- On the Filters tab, select the check boxes next
to the filters you want to enable. For example, when the Closed
projects filter is enabled, closed projects are not shown in
the Project Explorer view. Other filters can hide empty packages, non-java
files, and files with names ending in ".class".
- On the Available Extensions and Filters tab, the filters work in the opposite
way: the selected check boxes describe the projects, folders, and files that
are shown in the Project Explorer view. For example, if you clear the checkbox
next to J2EE Deployment Descriptors, the deployment
descriptors are hidden from each project in the view.
