Eclipse defaults are different to lots of IDE's we use on Windows, here's how we fix eclipse…

Open eclipse preferences:

Menu > Window > Preferences

General > Workspace > Build > Save automatically before build

General > Keys

To Upper Case – Ctrl + Shift + U

To Lower Case – Ctrl + Shift + L

C/C++ > Editor > Typing

Automatically close > all options = Off

Other Issues

CTRL+ left cursor and right cursor doesn't work even though key mappings are right in General > Keys

Disabling the welcome screen when eclipse starts up (checkbox not to show again) will fix it (weird java bug apparently)
