Hello hloeblich,

Add "nosplash" to the command line parameters.

Hmm, I just tried this but it does not seem to have any effect. I am running IDEA 6197 on Linux, and I invoke it with idea.sh
Is it supported in this version?

I tried the following:
idea.sh nosplash
idea.sh -nosplash
idea.sh --nosplash
idea.sh "nosplash"

Maybe your (older) version of IDEA doesn't support it.

7590 (7.0.2) supports the following:
idea.sh nosplash

This still doesn't work (Ubuntu 16.04). I tried "idea.sh nosplash", but IDEA still shows useless splashscreen and steals focus from my email reader 3+ times - crazy! If you cannot fix it and/or make an option in IDE itself to disable it, can you at least make this useless window _tiny_ ?

Also, why JetBrains Toolbox doesn't provide such feature? It's a launcher after all, can it know about JetBrain's software a little? You can show splashscreen + progress bar _inside_ the toolbox and **allow to close this screen with the close-window button**.

I am using MacOs. How can I hide the splash screen?

I use Toolbox, and my solution was:

  1. Select IntelliJ Settings
  2. Click on "Install location" - "Show"
  3. A file explorer will open. Navigate into the 'bin' folder;
  4. Edit file idea.sh, replacing the last 'com.intellij.idea.Main' on file for 'com.intellij.idea.Main nosplash'

That's it. I hope it helps...
