Attention, fellow LEGO Digital Designer users! Are you annoyed by how long it takes to get past LDD's welcome screen? Do you wish there was an easy way to skip the welcome screen every time you start up LDD? Well, I have a solution for you! First of all, either create a blank LXF file, or download mine. After that, it's as simple as opening that file instead of launching LDD from a normal desktop shortcut! (EDIT: Don't forget to set the "Read-only" attribute in the file's properties to prevent it from being overwritten!) But wait! I even came up with a method to launch LDD like that from the taskbar in Windows 7 and 8 (if you have it pinned there) while keeping the Jump List intact! Starting with an ordinary shortcut to LDD pinned to the taskbar, hold down Shift and right-click the shortcut. Then, left-click on "Properties" in the pop-up menu. Next, clear the "Target:" field on the Shortcut tab, then enter the location of the blank LXF file. Make sure to put double quote marks before and after the location. Example: "C:\Users\[insert your user name here]\Documents\LEGO Creations\Models\blank.lxf" Once you've entered the location of the blank LXF file, click OK. From now on, whenever you launch LDD from the taskbar, you'll go straight to the blank LXF file rather than the welcome screen. What if you're running Windows 8, and want to pin LDD to the Start screen? For that, I recommend Pin to 8, which will allow you to pin any file to the Start screen or taskbar in Windows 8. (Watch out for any fake download advertisements on that page! If you move your mouse cursor over a button and its URL contains "googleads," it's not the link you're looking for!) Happy virtual building! -Toa Of Justice EDIT: Here's yet another way to bypass LDD's welcome screen, courtesy of fgiorgi. With this method, there's no need to mess with shortcuts to LDD or blank files!
