Start window opens a fake session window

Since I installed Windows 11, when I click on the WinSCP start window, a window opens at the same time with the local directory of the last session and as the directory of the remote site the local folder "Documents".
Why is this and what can I do about it?
Thanks for any tips.
Regards

No, I have not deactivated the dialog box. When I open the start window, a dialog box also starts in the background, but this makes no sense. If I click on the desired dialog box in the start box, it opens correctly.

Re: Dailog Box

Can you please explain what you mean by "start window" or "desired dialog box in the start box". Maybe few screenshot might explain this better.

funny window

Thank you for asking. The wording really is a bit confusing. The attached PrtSc shows the situation. At the same time as opening the start box, the window opens in the background, which makes no sense.

Re: Windows

This has nothing to do with Windows 11. WinSCP behaves like this since 5.8 (2015).
And since 6.0, WinSCP is two-panel local file manager, in addition to being a file transfer client. So it's not like the "right" panel is "target directory".

I have been working with WinSCP for a very long time and am very satisfied. The behavior was never as described. Only since I switched to a new PC with Windows 11. But whatever – I can live with it.

Start window opens a fake session window

I never ever use WinSCP as a local file manager and before v6 never saw this behavior.
And I have always had "Show login dialog on startup and when the last session is closed" disabled. Previously when opening WinSCP I just got a single "New Tab" now I have this second local stuff.
So how do we stop this local two pane window from being opened?

Re: Start window opens a fake session window

@D: Sorry, I do not understand, what is the problem. By "disabled", do you mean "unchecked"? So WinSCP does not open the Login dialog automatically (and you want it that way). Is that correct? And you click "New Tab" ("New Session" in older versions) to open a new session. Correct? And what is different now (in 6.x)? Except that until you click the "New Tab", the right panel shows a local directory, while in 5.x it was gray?
