Lightroom Classic always has to open a catalog. It cannot run without one and does not have a 'home page'.

If you mean that on each launch you get the question which catalog you want to open, then go to Preferences - General, and change 'When start-up use this catalog' from 'Prompt me when starting Lightroom' to 'Load most recent catalog'.

You can also create on your desktop a shortcut  to the catalog itself, then use this shortcut to open your catalog.
