Open Recent Projects

You can use any of these methods to open recent projects:

  • On the MATLAB® Home tab, click Simulink, and select your project in the recent list.

    If you select a recent model that is part of a project, you can choose to also open the project.

  • On the MATLAB Home tab, click the Open arrow and select your project under the Recent Projects list.

  • From the Current Folder browser, double-click the .prj file.

  • In the Simulink® Editor, if an open model, library, or chart belongs to a project, you can, on the Simulation tab, select Project > View Project.

If you already have an open project, to load another project, click on the Project tab and open a recent project with these methods:

  • Click the Open arrow and select your project under the Recent list.

  • Select Open > Open. Browse and select your project .prj file.


You can have one project open at a time, to avoid conflicts. If you open another project, any currently open project closes.

When you open a project, you are prompted if loaded files shadow your project model files. To avoid working on the wrong files, close the shadowing files. See Manage Shadowed and Dirty Models and Other Project Files.
