Hi there,

  • The link you gave is for Upsource software.
  • This is a PhpStorm forum.

So ... where do you want the project to be deleted? In/From PhpStorm ... or Upsource?

Oh gosh. My bad.

PhpStorm is where I want to delete the project from.

How do you want to delete it?

I mean -- do you want to (1) physically remove the project files from the disk .. or just (2) remove it from Welcome screen/Recent projects list?

For (2) -- you can do it from Welcome screen (shown when all projects are closed) -- just hit "Delete" key on currently selected project or click on "x" button that will appear on top right corner (for selected entry). https://www.jetbrains.com/help/phpstorm/2017.2/welcome-screen.html#recent

The same can be done via "File | Open Recent | Manage Projects..."

For (1) -- you have to do it yourself in your file manager/file browser app (or terminal/console). IDE does not delete actual project folder from the disk.

 

In general: https://www.jetbrains.com/help/phpstorm/2017.2/creating-and-managing-projects.html

Okay, I knew I could delete the files from my file manager manually, but I was wondering if there is a way to use phpStorm to delete them. I guess I will have to delete them manually. Thank you for your help.

On a side-note. I have been confused about why a recently created project (the one I'm considering deleting) has been showing up in the Project window with a set of square braces [] next to it and the name of another project inside the braces. Further, when I click on File > Open Recent > the dropdown includes a duplicate with the (incorrect) project name (that appears in the square brackets). There is not even an option for the correct project name, even though I had it open recently.

Need to see some examples. Right now I do not have proper idea on what's happening there / what you are talking about.

Maybe it's a project with multiple content roots .. or perhaps a project that has other project(s) attached to it... I do not have any like that myself so not sure.

1 [2] 3

1 = Folder (Content Root) name

2 = Project name (shown if it's different from the folder name, e.g. when you used Rename Project)

3 = Path to the Content Root

(Every project contains at least 1 Content Root)

you can delete a project:

File > Open

In the wizard right-click on the project > delete

strange why this is so complicated
