Loaded Photoshop CC onto a new Dell running Windows 10. Instead of a nice, tranquil blank screen, I now see the PS screen showing me a list at top left that says Recent, CC Files, and LR Photos. Plus two oval-shaped bubbles containing 'Create new...' and 'Open'.
I'm obligated to be in one of the three modes first listed.
When I choose Recent, I see a large gallery of images I have edited recently. I edit a lot of images and don't need to see this.
When I choose CC Files or LR Photos, I'm directed at programs I'm not interested in using at the moment.
How does one remove these items and restore Photoshop to a blank screen?
It’s a workspace preference called Start Screen. You can turn it off in the preferences.
Ahhh, perfect. A clean slate-coloured slate to work from.
Much appreciated to you both.
