  • When you run eclipse, it will ask to make a workspace. Make a workspaces folder.

    • Tip: Placing all workspaces within a single folder makes it easier to locate each workspace.

    • For example: /c/Code/Eclipse/workspaces/first_git_main
  • Run the eclipse instance by changing to that directory and double clicking osee.exe
