IntelliJ and Eclipse Neon 2 installations

I had/have Eclipse Neon 2 installed.  I then "had" to install IntelliJ.  When I installed IntelliJ I gave it a separate workspace path.
I installed IntelliJ because I want to learn it, yet at the moment I need to do my work on Eclipse Neon2.
It appears that Intellij has invaded the workspace of Eclipse Neon2.
I do not want to uninstall IntelliJ.  So what might be an easy fix?
Or do I need to uninstall IntelliJ?

What exactly do you mean by "IntelliJ has invaded the workspace of Eclipse"?

mccarl, I apologize for neglecting this question.  I forgot about it, and it appears that EE is not sending me any notices.

By invading, I mean that my first and initial programs in my Eclipse "workspace" have the Intellij icon (that black icon with IJ).  This happened after I installed IntelliJ

mccarl, I solve this problem.  I ended up deleting the Eclipse workspace and created a new one.
