Snap Schedule version 1.0.2988 (and all previous versions) did not include a way to bypass the “Getting Started” screen even if you have been working with your schedule file for some time.

If you would like to bypass the “Getting Started” screen and/or create a quick way to open your schedule file, you can create a desktop shortcut to your schedule file as follows:

  • Close Snap Schedule.
  • Using Windows explorer, navigate to the directory containing your schedule file.
  • Right-click (and hold) on the schedule file and drag the icon to your desktop.
  • Release the right mouse button and select “Create Shortcut” from the context menu that appears.
  • You can now double-click on your newly-created shortcut to launch Snap Schedule and open that specific schedule file.

Note that Snap Schedule software versions after 1.0.2988 provide an option to hide the “Getting Started” screen at application start-up. In these subsequent releases, the last schedule file used will be opened if the “Getting Started” screen has been disabled. The above shortcut methods can still be used, however.
