The source for learning NetBeans.
In NetBeans, to open an existing project, you often go to File > Open Project and
use the file/directory chooser to navigate a myriad of directories to locate your project.
Until now, if you double-clicked a directory that was flagged as a NetBeans project it
would simply open the directory in the file chooser window. You would have to actually
click the Open button to cause the project to open.
In NetBeans 6 Milestone 10 – (M10), and in any recent daily build,
you can now double-click the project in the file chooser and it will open
Yes, this is only a minor annoyance, but if you frequently search for older projects
that are not in your recent projects list this is a great improvement.
