In general, I would rather bypass the Welcome screen and get straight to work so my preference is set accordingly. But now and then I would like to access the Welcome screen to maybe open a template or recent file. How do I do this without setting the preference and then restarting DW?

This home screen is always present in Dreamweaver, unless you have a document open, in which case it is hidden.
So, if you want to create a new document and your home screen is hidden, when you use File > New, or (Ctrl | Cmd) + N, the dialog box will allow you to easily access either a new type of document, or a document from a template...
but you can also use the menu File > Open a recent document, and thus pick in the last documents you worked on, in order to clone them.
but maybe I misunderstood your question?
Thanks - I hadn't noticed the the File\New dialog offered the templates.
Yes, it is possible to access your own templates as well as the templates provided with Dreamweaver out of the box.
icing on the cake, for the most part a visual is available (well in some cases one just get the HTML structure) but it often helps to distinguish the right choice, especially when one rework a site after several months.
This is my setting
When I leave a document open when exiting Dreamweaver, it will bypass the welcome screen and go straight to that document.
Thanks - I have been using the same settings myself but wanted to know how to step back, so to speak, to see the templates. But now I see they are offered on the File\New dialog (per Birnou).
