    Default Getting Started Page

    Just updated my friends Designer Pro to v17, and for love nor money I can't remember how to stop the Getting Started page from opening every time.

    Is there a check box, don't show again?

    And maybe the simplest way is to delete the page. Shut down Xara, then open Xara and see if it is gone.

    No, no tick box. Here's what I've done so far:
    Simply closed the Getting Started document - reappears on restart
    Deleted from C:\Users\ME\AppData\Local\Xara\XtremePro\17\Cache\ designs\eng\firstlook\intro_17_0 - these files reappear on restart
    Deleted from C:\Program Files\Xara\Xara Designer Pro X\17\basefiles\intro - these stay deleted
    Deleted from C:\Users\ME\AppData\Local\Xara\XtremePro\17\Backup s - reappears on restart

    I've done this before on different versions and also on my own WDP v16, but don't remember how, which means it wasn't hard or I would have.

    Hmm? I just delete the page and it never appears until the next version or update.

    Try the ubiquitous Run as administrator.
    Somewhere you have a file or Registry setting that is not being cleared.
