Can't open Toad after big query crashed in Editor


I had a huge query in the Editor (20 MB) and it crashed (out of memory). I had to restart the computer and now the Toad does not start ... I am assuming it tries to show that window with recover queries ...

Is there a way to skip this / delete the files cause I can't open Toad at all ...


Browse on your computer to C:\Users\YOUR_WINDOWS_USERNAME\AppData\Roaming\Quest Software\Toad for Oracle\13.3\User Files. The files that start with a squiggle (~) are Editor backup files. I think you can just delete or rename the one that's causing problems. Or delete all of the files that start with a squiggle if you want/need to clear them all out.
