When a project is opened, the Vivado IDE restores the state of the project from the time the project was closed. The project state includes the current source file order, disabled and enabled source files, active and target constraint files, and the state of synthesis, simulation, and implementation runs.

To open a project, use one of the following methods:

  • In the Getting Started page, click Open Project.
  • Select File > Project > Open.
  • Click the Open Project toolbar button .
  • In the Tcl Console, enter the open_project command.

From the Open Project dialog box, you can select a project file (.xpr extension). The File Preview window in the Open Project dialog box displays information about the currently selected file.

Note: Alternatively, you can double-click the Vivado IDE project file (.xpr extension) in Windows Explorer to open the project.
