Atom opening to blank screen


When I reopen atom on windows, it opens to a blank screen, not remembering previously opened tabs. I’ve searched through and have not found any solutions. I’m running 1.12.4. I appreciate any help.


Do you have a folder open in the left-hand sidebar? Atom remembers open files based on the “root project path”, and if you don’t have a project folder, then it doesn’t think that it has anything to reopen.

If that doesn’t apply, try opening files, closing Atom, and then starting Atom from the command line with atom --safe.


Thanks for the help.
