To access the Properties dialog box select a project and then select Properties… from the Project menu. Changes to the customized settings are saved in the project folder in your workspace. You can also customize the C/C++ properties for a single file for example, if you want to apply a specific compiler option to a file during the build.
NoteIf you specify different options for a single file, it overrides the options specified in the project configuration panels that apply to all related source files.
