so i am being challenged by using one same setting of eclipse on more than one computer, I have preferred settings that I like to use as well as settings. (it took me a while to set this up, colors, fonts etc). now when I go use another computer it doesn't allow me to use that exact setting. My eclipse directory is C:\Users\Alexandra\Desktop\eclipsw\. Does the configuration file in eclipse's folder allow me to save entire eclipse on my usb and use it on another computer? Or do i need to use an alternative method? TO carry my eclipse settings with me.

Thanks.

I think this topic would fit better in our IDEs forum. Moving.

You can also export your settings to a file by clicking File -> Export, then General -> Preferences. And when you move to a new workspace, you can import them from this file.
