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?

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 hereThen 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.

Sorry - NO! I just found out that I have the same problem. CC2020 preference doesn't change/resolve this.

Try this: go to Edit>Preferences>General and check Auto-Update Open File-based Documents

Restart Photoshop.

You should remove below folder first:

"%AppData%\Adobe\Adobe Photoshop 2020"

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.

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.

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.
