Disabling a new tab on start-up


Hey all!

is there a way to disable the “untitled” document creation on start-up? and if there isn’t, could it be implemented? :smile:


There isn’t and I’m pretty sure that there is a bug open already requesting this. I can’t find it at the moment though.


For me, Atom doesn’t open an “untitled” tab upon startup, even if I start atom from command line with atom --safe. I couldn’t find a setting for it, though.


If you open a folder, then Atom doesn’t open an untitled tab. But if you just open Atom using the icon, then it does.


That explains a lot. I never open atom from the icon


ah ok cool :slight_smile: I’ll see if I can find it, thanks :smiley:
