Welcome screen does not go away and theme always changes to default


I installed Atom on a new computer about two weeks ago. The welcome screen and Telemetry Concent continue to be the first thing that show up despite unchecking the “Show Welcome Guide when opening Atom” and both agreeing and declining the Telemetry Consent.
Also, I constantly change the UI theme to Atom Dark only to have it go back to One Dark next time I open Atom.


Take a look at the .atom/ folder in your user directory and see if it’s doing something weird like resetting itself.


Thanks, is there anything specific I should be looking for? both config.cson and init.coffee seem pretty empty.


That’s the problem, isn’t it? You need to figure out the conditions under which they become empty.
