Welcome Dialog Box

When you open the SOLIDWORKS software, the Welcome dialog box provides a convenient means to open documents, view folders, access SOLIDWORKS resources, and stay updated on SOLIDWORKS news.

You can also click Welcome to SOLIDWORKS (Standard toolbar), Help > Welcome to SOLIDWORKS, or Welcome to SOLIDWORKS on the SOLIDWORKS Resources tab in the Task Pane to open the Welcome dialog box.

The Welcome dialog box has tabs for: Home, Recent, Learn, and Alerts.

Some of the content from the Task Pane has moved to the Welcome dialog box to avoid duplication.
