If the start screen is showing but certain features of it are not working it may be possible something may be corrupted. Try this KB article and look at the sections for Filecache.dat and User Config Folder and see if rebuilding those help.
Thank you Ben
It shows the start screen all right, but it doesn't show the recent files...
I don't know what's wrong
I'll wait for some more support.
Thank you and regards from Frankfurt a. M.
Thank you Ben M.
I tried almost everything, but it's just like jinxed
The start screen opens OK, but no show of recent files.
I don't know wat to do.
Thank you and have a nice day.
Can you send us a screenshot of the start screen? We need to see how it looks like in your scenario?
Also, please try clearing your preferences and see if it works and show your recent files.
Thank you Niharika
As you see in the screenshot, the upper half, where it says „Ihre letzten Arbeiten werden hier angezeigt“, here should show the recent files I opened lately and worked on. Previously I had in this space preview icons, now there is nothing here…
The same as, on the left side of the screen, where it says „Letzte Dateien öffnen“, here should be listet the recent files I opened and worked on. Nothing…
As for your recommendation for clearing the preferences: I don’t know which ones of these 100s of files in the preferences folder are DW files and what to do with them…
Thank you for your assistance.
THANK YOU BEN M., THANK YOU NIHARIKA G. FOR HELPING ME RESTORE DW. EVERYTHING IS WORKING FINE NOW! GREETINGS FROM FRANKFURT. HOSEP
