Disable Reopen Tabs on Startup


The ability to reopen closed tabs on startup is a great feature, but is there any way to toggle/disable this feature?

I am frequently working with a package that adds a custom menu pane to Atom, and this causes significant loadup overhead if I had it open when I last closed Atom. It takes up to 5-6 seconds to load, so I would prefer to have no tabs open when I start Atom.

Of course I could just close the panes before quitting Atom to prevent it from opening at startup, but let’s keep to the topic. ;- )
