Specifying the default new project

The default new project opens whenever you choose New Project from the File menu on the Delphi menu bar. In a new Delphi installation the Blank Project template is the default. You can specify any other Project Template (including a project you have created and saved as a Project Template) as the default new project. Alternatively, you can designate a Project Expert to run by default when a new project is begun.
