Opening a project
There are multiple methods for opening a project from the Project List. The easiest method is to use double-click a project icon in the Project List.
Other methods for opening a project require you to first select, or highlight, a project in the Project List. To highlight a project, single-click a project in the Project List, or press Tab until the desired project is highlighted. If the highlight is already displayed in the Project List, you can use the Up and Down arrows to move the highlight among the projects. When a project is highlighted, its information is displayed in the Project Information pane.
Once a project is highlighted in the Project List, it can be opened by:
Clicking Open from the Project List toolbar, or by pressing Alt+O.
Clicking Open in the bottom right of the Project List window.
