Hi,

I always used Sumatra-PDF as my default PDF-Viewer, because it is small and fast and worked fine until now.
Until version: 3.4.6 It worked nice, i selected a number of PDFs for viewing and selected to see history-files, so when i start Sumatra-PDF i get a list with some PDF-Documents i already viewed in the past and i can now select one of this for viewing (See attachment-1)

Now i had updated to version: 3.5.2 and when i want to do the same as in the previous version when i now start i see only one PDF-document for viewing.
(See attachment-2)

I do not know how i can change that to what i used in the old version

In Settings/Advanced options:
make sure NoHomeTab is set to false and,
ShowStartPage is set to true...

Dear Edwin,

I checked the parameters you mentioned:
NoHomeTab = false
ShowstartPage = true

Both parameters in mine sumatra-Pdf are correct as you are given
But when i start Sumatra PDF i always get a starts-screen with one PDF-Document
All PDF-Documents i have read before are not shown (See Att-1 in mine first Post)

If you switch to the Home Tab, do you not see document history?

Dear Edwin,

If i start Sumatra PDF, i get a start screen and a display of 1 PDF-document (see attach-1)
When i then press: HOME-Button at the top, i get a new screen with, indeed, more PDF-Documents (see attach-2)
I think it is know how it should work.

I think it may be a good idea, if i can change the parameter-settings that the program always start with: HOME-Button activated?
If not i think it is OK know, and thanks again for your advice.

Sumatra will always restore the session you exited with, including the document you were viewing and the position you were at within that document..., you would have to exit Sumatra with the Home Tab in focus if you want it to open there again next session...,
if not, you would need to set RestoreSession to false, then only the Home Tab will open on the next session...
