GitHub Desktop – Not launching UI – Problem & Fix

Software:
GitHub Desktop 2.4.3 | Windows 10

About 1 or 2 weeks ago GitHub Desktop stopped opening it’s window when lunched.
It would run in the background, you could see it in the Windows Task Manager, but its window would not open.
Looking into this on various web discussions, I found that deleting the folder named app-2.4.3 in its application data solves the problem:

This is the path to GitHub Desktop‘s data:
C:\Users\<YOUR USER>\AppData\Local\GitHubDesktop
After deleting the folder and re-launching GitHub Desktop, I found it generated a new folder with the same name, so I guess settings for the latest update got corrupted, and the software generated new settings..
