No splash screen on NetBeans

I’m not a fan of the splash screens the applications, even less on those that place it on top of all your applications all along.

The NetBeans splash screen is easy to hide. You can run Netbeans with the command line option “--nosplash” or add this option to the default ones in the configuration file. This configuration file is in different places depending on the operatin system, but it usually in:

GNU/Linux: "installation folder"/etc/netbeans.conf
Mac OS X: /Applications/NetBeans/NetBeans 8.0.app/Contents/Resources/NetBeans/etc/netbeans.conf
Windows: C:Program FilesNetbeansetcnetbeans.conf

Now that you know where the config file is, edit it and add “--nosplash” to the netbeans_default_options option:

netbeans_default_options="-J-client -J-Xss2m -J-Xms32m -J-XX:PermSize=32m -J-Dapple.laf.useScreenMenuBar=true -J-Dapple.awt.graphics.UseQuartz=true -J-Dsun.java2d.noddraw=true -J-Dsun.java2d.dpiaware=true -J-Dsun.zip.disableMemoryMapping=true --nosplash"
