    Default Website Designer 15 Splash screen...?

    Is there any way of disabling the Website Designer 15 startup splash screen or changing the picture. I really don't like a bearded person glaring at me every time I start my program....

    BS, the product name is Xara Web Designer Premium. The "pop-up" is MagiXara's newsfeed (http://content.magix.net/newsfeeds/x...i/en/index.htm). Beardie might go in August.

    The pop-up has a "Don't show this again" checkbox; tick it.

    Yes I think there is a way of replacing the file (at least there used to be). But my tired old brain cannot remember how to do this. Check back. I am sure one of the members will remember how to do this.

    I did a search and this is all I could find from 2004. Not sure if these will still work https://www.talkgraphics.com/showthr...-splash-screen

    EEEEkkkkk! beardie man is still glaring at me and must have deleted the check box because he knows I don't like him. I don't have a check box??? I seem to remember seeing one associated with the updates panel splash while back which I unchecked but I have no checkbox on beardie man and I still get the splash when going to updates...

    Easy to solve then. Switch off and chill for four more days. Don't check for updates that often. Tune in here and we'll ring the bells when an update appears.

    There might be a MS Registry setting but I'm not trawling for it, sorry.

    Think he means this guy.

    I asked Xara if it is possible to change the splash screen image. If it is, the answer will be here.

    Yep I have no problems with the updates as I don't get Beardie Man then. It's every time I start my program. Oh Dear,there we are in a heatwave of 36-38 degrees and the world is going to fry, yet the worst torture in my life is Xara beardie Man...

    Strange, I don't get that as my splash screen.

    You can make your own and place it in the Bitmaps folder and, if this version is anything like previous ones, your Xara application will use it instead of the internal one.

    Do a search for the size. Search for something like splash or splashscreen.bmp

    Mike - I did a wildcard search for *.bmp in my Program Files > Xara folder and only came up with splash screens for Web Designer and Designer Pro version 10. I think they stopped using that method. And I could not find anything in Program Data or the App Data folders.
