Easy:
suppose u have function like this:

  public static void main(String[] args)
  {
    //hightlight this value and right menu
    String variable = "hello";
    echo(variable);
  }
 
  public static void echo(String value)
  {
    System.out.println(value);
  }


Select the variable (highlight it like double click on the variable to become selected) then right menu --> Watch....
A dialog will open to confirm that u selected the right expersion or variable, add it to watch, and open the watch pane, in the watch pane u will see the variable double click on it a dialog will appear asking u to enter a new variable, enter the new variable and continue debbugging

Good luck :)
