Default setting in Adobe Illustrator CS5 is to hide the Welcome Screen (Well, I don’t know why 🙂 ?). However, some people find it really helpful in their day to day work flow to have it open when no other document is open for editing. So, if you are one of those people then don’t worry. It is extremely easy to enable it so that it will show every time you start illustrator until you don’t open a document or create a new one. Also it will reappear if at sometime you close all of the open documents in your workspace. To enable it, follow the two simple steps given below:
- In the menu bar click on Help > Welcome Screen, with no document open. The welcome screen will appear in the middle of the window.
- Click once on the check box besides “Don’t show again” to un check it in the lower left hand corner of the welcome screen to enable it for future.That’s it!
