Tabs disappear every time SourceTree starts up

Christopher_Ferone January 4, 2018

Each time I open SourceTree, I do not see any of the project tabs I previously created. I can easily create new tabs, but its a bit annoying to have to do this every time I re-open SourceTree.

I am using the latest version of SourceTree:

Hello! Can you check and make sure that the "Re-open repository tabs on startup" setting is enabled?

That was the problem. Thank you!

Same problem here. Have the box checked, but the same pages always come up regardless of whether I close them or add new tabs.

Hi !

I unchecked the setting and then close Sourcetree.

Then I reopen Sourcetree and I checked the setting. It's now working correctly.

Hope it will be the same for you.

I use SourceTree Version 3.4.4 and this is not working for me. Is there a way you can help me?

@sfeutrier tip worked for me too. Uncheck and then check the box to actualise the option. Then restart sourcetree

For me this is not working. Is no support here from Atlassian side?

"Uncheck and then check the box to actualise the option." worked for me too.  


Can Atlassian fix the simple bug?
