How to FIX home screen not showing up when loading Photoshop

Hey,

We’ve recently had an issue with our home screen in photoshop not loading up automatically and our Auto show Home Screen box was already ticked in the preferences. It’s something that has been bugging us for a while now but we’ve finally found out the answer.

We noticed it only started happening when we applied new photoshop plugins from Adobe Marketplace. We then thought about issues faced when uploading plugins to WordPress and jQuery clashes between programs. So we decide to have a look at the plugin settings in photoshop. After clicking about a bit and reloading photoshop each time. We ended up finding it was the fact the Load Extension Panels box wasn’t ticked. In all honesty, we’re not sure why this is…. but, It works! and gets your home screen back again.

Are you facing the same issue or not seeing the home screen icon in the top left corner of your latest version of photoshop (v22.5 at the time of writing)? Fear not, stop pulling your hair out… RELAX!. Here is a 2 second fix for you. Enjoy.
