Turned on the Home screen in PS 2020 to see what is new and I can't turn it off. I unchecked Auto-show the Home Screen in preferences but the home screen still appears every time I launch PS. How can I disable the Home screen?
Sorry - NO! I just found out that I have the same problem. CC2020 preference doesn't change/resolve this.
I agree it is a nuisance everytime you start it up.... I wish I could help with this one....
Try this: go to Edit>Preferences>General and check Auto-Update Open File-based Documents
Sorry, just tried that and no change.
This worked for me! : )
This worked for me.
You should remove below folder first:
"%AppData%\Adobe\Adobe Photoshop 2020"
Didn't help, will try remove folder first
Thank you, removing that folder worked - thank goodness!
This worked for me (in photoshop 2021). Thanks!
You may have to do it several times before the <bleep> thing gets the message and goes away.
I just reset preferences because a Select and Mask setting wouldn't stick. Fixed that - but then I suddenly found myself in Home Screen he11. It was like a leech, it just wouldn't let go. I think I had to relaunch and restart 4 or 5 times, checking and unchecking that box in between.
I was sort of prepared because it did the same thing when I first installed 2020, although it let go the second time then.
I've just experienced the same thing with Photoshop 2020. I managed to sort it. I'm not sure which did the fix so perhaps do both.
Edit - Preferences - General - Uncheck "auto show homescreen" - Then reset preferences on quit - Ok - prompt - ok - then "cancel" out of here
Then Ctr N and create a new canvas. Then close everything down. Reopen Photoshop and hopefully like me, it will finally be gone 🙂
Hope this helps someone out there.
This worked for me, Thank you!
Thanks for the guidance, did not work exactly for me, However, Uncheck "auto show homescreen" - Ok - prompt. Then Ctr N and create a new canvas. Then close everything down. Reopen Photoshop.
Wow, this is crazy. Thanks for the hack, but, seriously Adobe – what are you thinking about? It's like you don't really care about their faithful customers that's been with you for years and have Photoshop implementer as part of their cyborg setup. No one asked for all your new "improvements", and each edition doesn't seem to be bug proved no more. Please Adobe, get yo shize togetha.
Wow! This method really works. How would you able to know this? haha Thank you so much!
That works, thanks been driving me nuts.
This worked for me too. THANKS!!
Thank you -worked for me too.
I'm so glad you figure it out.. 🙂
Thank you so much.. 🙂
Can't believe this is what it took to make this work. But thank you. Start screen is gone finally.
Unbeliveable, but it works in macOS too! Thank you very much!!! It's a shame for Adobe that this very basic setting doesn't work out of box.
Worked a treat, thanks 🙂
We are all paying too much to be bothered with such distracting stuff. Shame on you Adobe 😞
