I have been using Atom for a while now. However recently, the tree view no longer appears on startup whenever I open files such as txt and json. Toggling the tree view allows it to appear but I do not see the folder’s contents in it. When opening Atom from the desktop shortcut, it ends up as a blank screen and shows that it is unable to locate the destination of the file I recently opened.
Yes, the tree view works fine again when I reopen the file through the “Open Folder” option. However it used to function just fine before whenever I open the .txt or .json files WITHOUT having to launch Atom from the desktop shortcut.
Here is a screenshot of how the app looks like when opening a file:
Please help, thanks!
