New year resolution for using Eclipse – Hiding the toolbar

Happy 2017.

For this year I plan to use Eclipse without toolbar. I think this will enforce me to use more shortcuts, e.g. for perspective switching, for starting the last run porgram and the like. Also it gives me more “real estate” in the IDE for the code.

If you want to do the same, select Windows -> Appearance -> Hide Toolbar from the menu.

    For better remembering of the shortcuts, you may want to install the Mousefeed Plugin: It displays the shortcut whenever you are triggering an action using your mouse. 🙂
