Check out from Version Control when projects are open

So normally when you close all your projects and start up say webstorm. You get this popup showing your last used projects. On the rigth you have

* create new project
* open
* create new project from existing files
* check out from version control

I usually check out from version control, but here is the thing i want to know. How can i check out a new project via version control if i already have a project open? Sometimes i have multiple projects open and someone comes by and i need to open up his project (which is on git) the only easy way is to close all projects so i get this dialog again. Sure you can say new project, choose a folder / boilerplate and then say its a git repo and checkout. This seems rather odd since that first dialog does all for me.

So how can i get a "Check out from version control" once i already have a project open. Without the need to fill in a path of boilerplate?

Just noticed that on intellij this options is just there, its not on webstorm? Why is that? :-)

Main menu, VCS | Checkout from version control

No ideas:) It's a platform feature, so it's the same in both Idea and WebStorm

Ah thanks, i always thought this would only be possible with that option if you have a project open. Since it doesn't indicate "New" on the VCS tab. Which it does on intellij.
