    Somehow I managed to uncheck the box that says "show this screen at startup" on the XCode startup screen that shows recent projects. Is there a way to get this back? I am using XCode 3.2.1.

    Thanks...

    Do you, perhaps, have Property List Editor.app?

    I think that would work if that file were on my system. I looked in the folder and did a search, but couldnt find that plist file.

    You are looking in your user directory, not the root Library, right?

    Gosh, now i feel dumb... I looked in the root directory. Funny how spotlight didnt find it though. For future reference, in XCode 3.2.1, the option I found to re-enable the splash screen is called XCShowSplashScreen. didnt have to delete a value, just rechecked the checkbox next to it...

    Thanks guys...

    Although the question's been answered, another way to solve this is:

    Under Xcode's Help menu, choose "Welcome to Xcode". The window will appear. You can then check the box that says "Show this window...".
