How to open last opened project folder on startup?


How to open the files and project folder that were open when shut down on start-up. So far the topics that talk about this give no clear answer. Note: All packages that offer this functionality have been depreciated because the functionality is now included in Atom core", but unchecking “Open Empty Editor On Startup” doesn’t change anything.


You just open Atom. If it doesn’t have a target, it will open whatever project folder you had open last time. If you’re on Mac, check that Atom is actually closed and that you haven’t merely closed all of the windows.


That did it!


I was going to explain the subject in more depth, then I remembered how many times I’ve answered that question or a variation thereof and decided that it was best to create a FAQ entry with absolutely everything about the topic.
