There's a nice troubleshooting guide here:

If the issue persists, those guides have info you'll want to bring back here (e.g., your system info, more info describing your issue,)

Thanks for the post. The issue I am having with "RStudio doesn't launch in Windows 10" still persistent. It did ask me to chose R version when started. After I chose (either R3.5.1 32bit or 64 bit), it only bring up a blank RStudio. I am running windows 10.

Some system and error information is usually helpful in diagnosing problems like this:

A colleague reported a similar problem.

My laptop was recently upgraded to windows 10, and ever since then Rstudio doesn’t open properly. It just brings up a blank white window.

Uninstalling and reinstalling Rstudio and R did not help.
I held down Ctrl while starting Rstudio, and then selected “Software” under the desktop rendering option. That did the trick.


This worked for me too.
