SQL Developer: How to restore / add the Connections tab in SQL Developer?

If you have been using SQL Developer for some time, you have probably encountered the situation that you accidentally or for various reasons closed the Connections tab. However, how to restore or add it again and get a default view in SQL Developer? In this short post I will show you how to add it in two ways.

1. Adding the Connections tab in View

The first way you can add any SQL Developer tab (Connections, SQL History, Debugger or Dbms Output). To do this, click on the View menu bar and then Connections. The Connections tab will be visible default on the left .

2. Restart tool window to default settings

The second way to restore the Connections tab is to reset to the factory settings of SQL Developer. This functionality will definitely be useful if you also need to close any tabs that you no longer need. No matter what and how many tabs you have previously opened, the Connections and Reports tabs will be re-opened by default.

To reset the window settings, select from the Window from menu bar and then Reset Window To Factory Settings.
