If you would prefer not to see the starting splash screen which (to us) *feels* like it slows down the startup, follow this procedure.
- Right Click your Launch Icon, choose Properties.
- Click the Shortcut tab if not already there.
- In the Target field, after the “..acad.exe” text, put in a space followed by /nologo.
Make sure there is a space before and after the switch. For Bricscad users, put in /l instead.
