I have installed both Eclipse IDE for Java Developers and Eclipse IDE for Enterprise and Web Developers. My question is why I don't have special icons for these two?

When I open either of them, I can see them share same icon in taskbar which I don't like. I have to manually search in my PC for path to find them individually and run.
Is there something I can do to bookmark them separately (for example in my taskbar), so I can directly open them and not search in my computer every single time?

How did you fix it guys? I know there are some of you using more than one installed Eclipse, as well...

Hmmm kind of, but I am missing basic concept. Why am I not provided with 2 separate apps of eclipse in the first place? They are different installs/packages, right?

Can you look on your PC and find what folders and files are used?  Is there one for each version of eclipse or is there only one that is shared?

I saved them to separate folders so there wouldn't be any collision.

When I run Eclipse SE I have 2021 version, but when I run Eclipse EE I have 2020. Does it simply mean that Eclipse is "one" and that depending on what packet I download, I would have more or less plugins?

Meaning Eclipse EE is exactly the same as Eclipse SE, plus some additional features?
I sent attachments so you can compare them if you like.

There appear to be two separate eclipse.exe files in their own folders.
You can create shortcuts to each of those two exe files, rename the shortcuts and copy them to the desktop so that there are two shortcuts with different names on the desktop.

Is this thread the same topic: https://coderanch.com/t/741402/eclipse/ide/Eclipse-IDE-Java-developers-Eclipse
