Opening screen in Canvas

Jump to solution

How do I make the dashboard be my opening screen when I sign on to Canvas.  I must have changed it at some point, but I'm not sure why it opens to an old course.

Hi Erwin,

I am wondering if you might potentially have an old bookmark that you are using to load Canvas, when you go to the main Canvas URL for your school, it will log you in and always take you to the Dashboard. I am not aware of a setting that lets you change this.


Hence, I thought perhaps if you have a bookmark, you may have in the past bookmarked an old course, in which I could see this happening. If you edit the bookmark to remove the 'courses/12345678/...' bit, then it should take you to the default login screen and Dashboard.

Please give that a go and let us know if it works, if not, we can try to dig deeper!

Hope that helps!

Stuart
