Atom does not start up on Mac. Nothing shows up



I’ve tried googling but could not find any answers anywhere.

Atom does not start on my Mac after working perfectly normal a few days ago. The icon shows up in the dock but nothing else comes up. No error window, nothing. I’ve tried uninstalling it and reinstalling it but it does not work.

And you can only ‘quit’ it in the top left corner. See print screen.


I’m on Mac version 10.14 and the latest Atom (I think, I just downloaded it from the front page on the website).

Anybody knows what’s happening?


Apparently Atom was not 100% uninstalled, and I just managed to do it according to:

and reinstalled it now and it works. Incase anybody else ends up in here…
