I'm fairly new to Premiere Pro, and I'm hoping the developers are not so bad that I have to choose either the Home screen or opening the Most Recent project every day when I open Premiere Pro?!?
Please tell me this isn't true - I though we left horrible designs like this back in the 80's?
Really, why would they not include the option, "just open the dang software so I choose what I want to work on and get some work done" which is the default mode for EVERY other software package I use?!?
just double-click on the project you want to load before launching premiere and away you go.
That's not a bad suggestion really, it's just in every other software program (including Photoshop and Premiere Elements) I do it the other way because the program filter out files that are not native...
These are the only options available I'm afraid. However, if you don't want to see any of these, just start by opening your Premiere project from Explorer/Finder and it will load straight into the project itself skipping welcome screen
Thanks for the tip - I may try that - I really just want the program to launch and let me choose file - open recent
While I don't necessarily disagree that it doesn't hurt to have the option. Unless I'm missing something, it seems like a fairly small hill to die on, so to speak.
V1 - Home screen: Click Premiere, Click on recent project or New Project (2 clicks)
V2 - No Home screen: Click Premiere, Click File, Move to Recent Files, Click Project. (3 clicks - same if starting a new project.)
V3 - Direct via Folder: Click Finder/Explorer, Click Project Folder (will assume it's favorited), Double click Project (3+ clicks)
Opening DaVinci Resolve I get the same type of home screen. I didn't see a way to turn that off either, but I don't know that software nearly as well.
I dont' disagree that this is not a big deal for you, and probably many others.
And you know what, if I was just creating a home video for the family once every few weeks then it wouldn't be a big issue.
But that's not me.
I'm using Premiere for work, and the more work I get done the more I get paid.
So this isn't a "hill to die on," this is about effiecientcy, common sense, and exercising my Right as a paying customer to provide feedback about a bad feature that's slowing me down.
At least with Premeire Elements and Photoeshop Elements there "IS" a way to get rid of the help screen.
Sadly not so in Premiere Pro currently.
Dear Adobe - please add a third option to choose neither pop-up, and help us get more work done.
And now it seems I can't edit my reply to fix the typo's 😞
Click the "More" button, Shawn. You can edit your reply.
On the mac, I've got all my premiere projects in a folder that's mirrored in the dock, Just click on the folder in the dock and choose the project which launches premiere and the project. I'm sure there's something similar in windows. Can't imagine how it could be faster than that
and you can have it sorted so the most recently opened project is at the top of the list...
Wow! For a new user... so negative and inflexible. I quite like the 'small hill to die on' comment.
BTW: you can simply press ESCape on the home screen and it's gone, all the while you can be heading for the FILE menu.
Also simply, you can keep desktop shortcuts for any project. It will be available and right where you put it each time.

Please create a feature request here: https://adobe-video.uservoice.com/forums/911233-premiere-pro
I'll add to the feature request link to add for a third option to not show anything. As stated before, other Adobe apps allow it to be turned off. In a studio environment with multiple editors on a server, "most recent" is a pretty useless to me. I use Premiere in full screen (which has its own bugs), so having the Home screen show up on another desktop is annoying. I wasn't aware of the Esc button to clear the home screeen away. For now I think I'll program a hot key on my StreamDeck to close the project and Esc as a single button. Its nice when you close out of something that you can be back to a clean desktop and not still having an app layer between you and the Finder in the case of OSX.
