Seriously, put that in the preferences... It used to annoy me in the past... but now with the hideous CS6 splash screens it's simply a necessity.

Can we PLEASE have the ability to remove or change the ugly artwork on all CC apps loading screens. I don't want to look at pink flamingos, a horrendous digital watercolour painting of a Glastonbury Festival attendee or a break dancer 50 times a day.

As much as it offends you, itʼs true, Todd. Most of the responses misunderstand the question, and not one single person here has actually provided a correct answer to the Splash Screen question. It would be nice if these experts youʼre talking about could check in on occasion, because this question has been asked many times and the “experts” are not of any assistance.

 

Now that Iʼve solved it for myself, I will post post an answer below that actually works, since this thread has been waiting 2 years for an answer.

I know Iʼm 2 years late, @Mike851, but I had the same problem with the annoying Splash Screen (NOT the Home Screen, for those who didnʼt undedrstand that distinction), and maybe this will help someone else get rid of it.

THIS is a Splash Screen

 

Mike, I see youʼre running Windows, so this is how to disable the Splash Screen in Windows 10:

 

Hit 'Start' then type in “photo” to bring up the Photoshop icon

Click on the down arrow below “Open” to expand that menu

Click on “Open file location.” This will bring up the appʼs shortcut location:

It may look different on your system, depending on your defaults, but whether itʼs an icon or a detailed list item, right click on it and select “Properties” at the bottom of the context menu:

In the “Target” box in the dialogue that comes up, you will need to add something to the end of the string of characters. Click in the “Target” box and hit the ‘End’ key and then ‘Space.’ Now, type:

 

-NoSplash

Then click on OK at the bottom. Voilà, Photoshop will no longer feel the need to monopolise a third of your screen with an ad while it takes 15 seconds to start in the background.

 

If you have the app pinned to your taskbar, youʼll need to do the same thing, starting with right-clicking on the appʼs icon and hitting “Properties.”

Most users realise the term written “experts” is mild contempt for armchair experts who really are not. Your explanation should not suggest inverted commers for Windows 10  users otherwise, and thanks for your obvious expertise, it works.

Why not allow users to showcase their own artwork on the startup splashscreen? I think some users might appreciate being able to disable the splashscreen altogether, too. This would be a very easy feature to implement and greater customisation always equates to a better user experience.

I think a "disable splash" checkbox should be put right on the splash screen, not only in preferences.

Can we PLEASE have the ability to remove or change the ugly artwork on all CC apps loading screens. I don't want to look at pink flamingos, a horrendous digital watercolour painting of a Glastonbury Festival attendee or a break dancer 50 times a day.

 

That's exactly what I want. I just made it in Adobe Premiere Pro 2022. I am on Windows, so I used a Windows system internal tool called Process Monitor to tweak it. Since I guess the CC app tries to open an splash image file, I need to figure out what and where the images are.

 

First, I captured events at the start of Adobe Premiere Pro 2022 in Process Monitor (there are buttons on the toolbar) and filtered out only those related to this app (find an event record of 'Adobe Premiere Pro.exe', right click it under "Process Name" colume and select "Include 'Adobe Premiere Pro.exe'" in the context menu.

Second, click menu Tools -> File Summary because I wanted to list all files Premiere opened during launch and then picked up the wanted splash image files. There are tons of files opened, but since I was only searching for image, we can narrow down the range of search a lot.

Heng22511085gk22_1-1641380228097.png

 

So, click the "By Entension" Tab of the File Summay dialog because image files have characteristic file extensions. In the left side of the dialog, I scrolled down patiently and found only one file extension (fortunately) that is related to image: png. Expanded it and I caught the culpret:

  • C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Premiere Pro 2022\PNG\pr_splash.png
  • C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Premiere Pro 2022\PNG\pr_splash@2x.png
  • C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Premiere Pro 2022\PNG\pr_splash@3to2x.png

Heng22511085gk22_2-1641380421587.png

 

Now, opening them in Paint as adminstrator, we can remove the contents (Ctrl-A, Del, and Ctrl-S to save) or replace with other picture we like. Restarting Adobe Premiere Pro 2022, the ugly splash screen are just white. We're done and good to go.

 

Although the above approach is for Adobe Premiere Pro 2022, I hope it can provide a helpful clue for other CC apps.
