Change the “Welcome” message

This page explains how to change the welcome message (the message shown when you press the “START” button on the console).

Open Windows’ File Explorer and enter this folder in the top bar: %APPDATA%\Stellarium.

Find the “WelcomeSC.ini” file and open it with your preferred text editor (Windows’ Notepad or, better, Notepad++). It looks like this:

text = This is a welcome message, you can modify me!

Change the default text with a custom text (not too long otherwise it cannot be readable).

You can also customize the total duration (default 12 seconds), if it’s visible or hidden (default: visible), the font size (default: 26), and the font color (default: #f0f030, light yellow).

Save the file.
