I don't have much memory on my PC and a pretty weak processor. Although netbeans is by far my favorite IDE it is almost unbearable to use on my present computer because of the project scanning that starts automatically when I open the program.
Is there a way to prevent netbeans from scanning projects?
hey George i dont know if this is much of an answer but i right-click and choose 'close' on the projects that i don't need open. there's no point in having all your past projects listed there. just have the one that you are developing open. you can always reopen the other projects from the menu. once all the projects you arent using are closed they wont be scanned each time you start netbeans
