How do I make The Grid 2 show my grids when it starts?


When The Grid 2 starts it shows Grid Explorer so that you can select a User.

You may prefer to configure The Grid 2 so that it will skip Grid Explorer and display grids right away. To do this, go to File > Preferences, and select the option “Start the default user immediately”.

You can also select which user is your default user at this point.

Next time you start The Grid 2, you will see your grids instead of Grid Explorer. If you want to access Grid Explorer, you can select File > Grid Explorer from the menu.
