Other startpage/app than dashboard after login


I have a very simple problem but I cannot solve it.
I want to have an other page and app after nextcloud login, for example:

How can I do that? There must be several ways to get that right …



in config.php:

'defaultapp' => ...

see Configuration Parameters — Nextcloud latest Administration Manual latest documentation

Thanks. That works to open the correct app. But as there is no way on a smartphone to navigate to /apps/photos/albums, because the menu hides under the first photo within every browser I tried, I would like to go to /apps/photos/albums directly. Is there any way to do that?


Why do you not install the smartphone app. Nobody uses the mobile browser for that. :wink:

Install - Nextcloud

→ Android: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.nextcloud.client
→ iOS: ‎Nextcloud on the App Store

Because there is no diashow in the nextcloud app. At the desktop the photo app is very comfortable.

Maybe you can better use the app files for default:

  'defaultapp' => 'files',

Then you go in the correct directory, open the first image and start the diashow.
Works for me in browser of my smartphone.

By setting a bookmark in your browser.

Yes, works for me, too. Thanks.

I am not sure if this is the correct place to ask.

I do not ask abt mobile use, but normal desktop access via Browser.
In my case I am landing at ‘dash’ which takes for long time to load and has no menaing or use.
I would like to land directly in folders list.

Any way to do this?

Besides the solutions already mentioned in the thread, you could also simply disable or uninstall the Dashboard app, if it is of no use to you. With the Dashboard app disabled, by default you’ll land in the Files app after logging in.

Oh, thanks!

Now I did find the ‘disable’ button for the apps. I disabled it and now
I am landing in files.

Many thanks
