Issue

When starting Tableau Desktop, it takes a very long time to load the main Start Page. During this time progress bars are shown indicating creation of views, even though no workbooks have been loaded.

Environment

  • Tableau Desktop
  • Windows

Resolution

Remove the Recently Opened previews by clicking the X in the upper right corner of each of them.

Cause

One of the Recently Opened previews is likely taking a long time to load and slowing down the entire process.
