Emacs – Disable Splash Screen

February 14, 2009

For years I’ve been a pico user. However as time went on I became more and more aware that I was limiting myself as there was much pico could not do. After much debating on which I should learn, Vi or Emacs, I eventually went with Emacs. After installing it and starting to use it I found myself quickly becoming frustrated with its annoying splash screen.  So here is a handy tip on how to disable that splash screen.

First off, open your config file:

emacs ~/.emacs

Now add the following line and save it:

(setq inhibit-splash-screen t)

That’s all there is to it!
