Windows 7 SP1
English (North American)
I also have the same problem using the Firefox Open With Photoshop addon, or dragging an image onto the Photoshop desktop shortcut.
I have started a new project since opening this topic, and created a new Library from a large PSD file for this project. What happens now is that Photoshop initially opens with my usual workspace, but quickly switches to the Start Screen but now with the addition of the Libraries panel on the right of my main screen, (I use three monitors).
Chuck and SG (staff poster) have pointed out that we can clear it with the Escape key, which I should have guessed to try. I am happy with that personally, but I have asked if this behaviour is the same for everyone.
I'm quite liking the Start screen (Or I'd avoid this issue by disabling it). I like that I get thumbnails for recent documents, and I love having recent file downloads with thumbnails. I 'think' I work very quickly though, and get annoyed with apparently needless obstacles.
I am still a fan of the Start and Recent files screens, but they are just a wee bit clunky at the moment.
Every time I open Photoshop there are no workspaces showing not even default.
I did the latest update last night hoping it would fix this but nope still a problem. I always have to turn it back on. Please help!
I am running Windows 10
I have a similar problem with 2015.1.2
Recently, PC CC 2015 has started freezing
for up to 4-5 minutes upon startup. The UI becomes unresponsive,
workspace is black, the tool panels are not displayed. CPU activity is
0%. There's nothing to do but waiting. The problem totally disappeared
when I disabled the "Start Workspace". Now, PS launches almost
instantly. The problem appeared after I installed a new graphics adapter
(a Quadro K620).
I'm wondering whether PS has problems connecting to the servers providing the news in the Start Workspace.
