I just downloaded Netbeans 8.2 but when I tried to open or create a new project or file, nothing happens. I am just stuck on the starting page. I tried re-downloading it and also resetting my laptop many times but the problem still exists. Does anyone know why? (And I'm using MacPro)
What does that starting page look like? You don't have a File menu to pull down?
When I open my (pretty old) NetBeans IDE and close all projects, I see a kind of T-shaped screen with three boxes and it has the menu bar at the top. It may be (if memory serves) it had an ad-like screen talking all about how great NetBeans was on one of the large panes. If you don't have a menu bar, please attach a screen shot.
If a chicken that is half full crosses the road, will anyone hear it?
