Sourcetree doesn't reopen project at startup on Windows

I have the setting "Re-open reposistory tabs at startup" but when I start Sourcetree my repository is not open.



Sourcetree version: 3.1.3

Windows: Windows 10 Enterprise

I had the same on 3.3.8, had to reopen repos everytime. Then I found the option to re-open tabs at startup....! I'd like to think this got turned off with an update, but it could have been fat fingers!

Tools > Options > General > Repo Settings - 5th checkbox down

It sounds like the open tabs are not being saved to disk -- could you do the following for me?

  • Open Sourcetree and open some tabs
  • Close Sourcetree
  • Find the open tabs file under "C:\Users\USERNAME_HERE\AppData\Local\Sourcetree\opentabs.xml"
  • Check the contents and see if your tabs got saved

If they got saved but are still not loading then this might be a bug on our end.



I had this on a new Windows 10 install until I closed it and re-opened it. 

I wonder if it doesn't always get the chance to save the tabs on Windows shutdown.

Same here-- had to shut down via the File menu and then things came up the way I'd expect.

Note that I do not see an opentabs.xml in the location that Mike specifies, I'm on Sourcetree 3.3.8.
