Thanks a lot Andreas! I uninstalled the whole software and deleted the file in the .config directory as you mentioned in three path. Then I reinstalled it and it started perfectly.

Can you please try to archive (.zip) your folder with the current Octave settings (should be c:\Users\YourUsername\.config\octave\) and then delete it?

Octave should then recreate the files with default settings.

If this works for you, you might append your created archive so we can check if there is something suspicious in your settings.

I have been using Octave for a few weeks and it worked perfectly.
But once, I just un-docked the command line window from the main GUI frame and closed Octave. After that whenever I tried to relaunch it, it tried to open with both windows (the main GUI frame and the command line window) and it crashes immediately.
Sometimes it just gets launched, but when I click on the dock icon on the command window, it crashes right then.
