list of projects in left column

When I initially tried PyCharm it was on windows and I believe it showed all the projects I created on the left column. Since using it on Linux and Mac it only shows the project I'm working on and if I create a new one it will ask me if I want to open it in this window or a new one.

Assuming I wasn't imaging things and the windows version was showing all my PyCharm projects, I assume the reason for the difference between operating systems is just down to having a newer version for Mac/ Linux.

Is it possible to get PyCharm to show all my PyCharm projects so I can switch between then quickly without having multiple windows open?

I'm not entirely bothered about it because usually I do just work on one project at a time but sometimes it comes in handy.

Hello Frank,

There is no difference between operating systems. The contents of the Project

View depends on what you select in the "Open Directory" action; if you open

a directory one level above all your projects, it will show the contents

of all your projects.

Note that all the configuration is global to the selected directory, so if,

for example, you're using Django, you won't get correct functionality if

you open a directory containing multiple projects. For plain Python projects,

everything should work more or less OK.

Thank you for that. I must not have paid attention to what I did the first time around on Windows.
