Starting Rhino

When Rhino installs, a shortcut icon is saved to your desktop. Other options for opening Rhino involve customizing or creating new shortcuts, using schemes, and starting Rhino in safe mode.

Command-line arguments

/<schemename>

Opens Rhino in different work environments.

To save schemes

  1. Make a Windows desktop shortcut to Rhino like this:
    "C:\Program Files\Rhino 6\System\Rhino.exe" /scheme="WhiteBackground"
  2. Set up Rhino with your white background colors and exit.
  3. Start Rhino from this shortcut.
    Rhino will find and store all settings in
    %AppData%\McNeel\Rhinoceros\6.0\settings\settings-Scheme__WhiteBackground.xml
  4. Make another shortcut:
    "C:\Program Files\Rhino 6\System\Rhino.exe" /scheme="BlackBackground"
  5. Set up Rhino with your black background colors and exit.
  6. Start Rhino from this shortcut.
    Rhino will find and store all settings in:
    %AppData%\McNeel\Rhinoceros\6.0\settings\settings-Scheme__BlackBackground.xml
The scheme saves the following settings:

/nosplash

Hides the splash screen when Rhino starts. View the splash screen with the About command

To hide splash screen when Rhino starts

/safemode

Starts Rhino in safe mode without OpenGL or third-party plug-ins. Safe mode is a method of opening Rhino with features disabled that might be the cause of crashing.

Safe mode is not designed to be a working mode – it is a troubleshooting, problem solving mode.

Use safe mode if Rhino crashes immediately on starting, crashes when shading, or crashes when running commands that are part of a plug-in. Please report all problems crashing Rhino to the Rhino development team.

If you launch Rhino in safe mode, the following items will be disabled:
