For other versions:


Some of JetBrains product are available in different editions (ex: PyCharm - Professional, Edu & Community). In that case they share the same bin / keyword, so you need to customise the Preferences folder to retrieve your projects.

A search engine is used to retrieve relevant project. For some use cases, the default configuration is not optimal for you.
