Sketchup file opens to home screen and not drawing

I just downloaded Sketchup 2022 pro on my new work laptop and for some reason I am having difficulties opening up drawing files from a folder. When I navigate to the folder and double click the file I want to open and work on, the Sketchup home screen opens but it does not open up the drawing itself. The only work around that I have been able to get work is to open up the home screen and click open file and renavigate to where the files are located and click it. This is disrupting the workflow and my time and I cant figure out why this is happening and don’t know how to fix it.

Did you correctly install SketchUp 2022? That requires right clicking on the downloaded installer and selecting Run as administrator from the context menu. Try the following.

Quit SketchUp.
Find the installer file in your Downloads folder.
Right click on it and choose Run as adminstrator.
When presented with the option, choose Repair.
After the installation completes power off the computer and reboot it.
Try again to open a file and see what happens.

I just tried this and it is still doing the same thing :frowning:

Is this a new out-of-the-box or new to you?

It is new out of the box
