I just discovered that using the control key on my desktop speeds up the loading of Logos. I moved from nearly 2 minutes to about 15 seconds. One of the Logos techs helped me discover this when I needed help getting Logos 8 installed. As I recall, he told me to hold down the control key on my desktop to let the installation process continue. It did so and rapidly. All I had to do was select the correct layout I was using when Logos 7 was last shut down. Now I can hold down the control key when opening Logos 8 and it opens rapidly even though I have only a Win 10 Intel core 2 duo w/ 6GB ram.
It is working for me! Try it! I bet you will like it. :-)

2 minutes with a layout to 15s for a blank window?

Many of us load a layout/homepage, so our overall elapsed time will be much less than doing as you suggest. What are your Startup options in Program Settings?

If you select a named layout, it will not reflect the state when L7 was shut down, unless you selected the latest Application Closed and renamed it.

Perhaps some logs of a normal startup with  layout would help diagnose the issue.

Thanks for your feedback Dave. I have noted your many useful inputs for forum users. Your knowledge & experience far surpass mine. I was just celebrating the discovery of opening Logos in less than 2 minutes. (Intel Core 2 Due machine w/ only 6GB Ram - slow by today's standards) BTW, I did rename a layout and after using the cntrl opening and selecting the latest application closed I am up and running on my very slow machine in about 15 secs. To me that is a wonderful change. :-)  Thanks again for your input.

And I don't want to diminish your joy. I wonder how long it takes without the CTRL key, but first do this:-

  1. Open Program Settings, find At Startup Open to and select Most recent layout - local
  2. In the Command Box at the top of the Logos Window (with green GO in Logos 8), type Set Use Ngen to Yes and hit Enter.

Restart Logos normally a couple of times after this, and report the result.
