I’m have a minor issue. Recently I upgraded my desktop from 15.2 to 15.3. All went well. However, when I logged in for the first time a small “Welcome” screen popped up. The contents was a green screen with a white opensuse logo (afraid to say chamelion or gecko, because I don’t know which it is XD) and it stays that way until I close the window. When I have to log out or restart and then log back in, the welcome screen pops up again.
Yes. The file is $HOME/.config/autostart is given precedence. So that overrides the desktop file in “/usr/share/applications/”. And that “hidden=true” is what disables it from starting on your next login.
Same issue here using Tumbleweed and no matter the last upgrades the green screen lasts until I remove the package. There’s no autostart for that. For curiosity, I reinstall it after a reboot and the issue was back. For now, since this package doesn’t matter anyway, I just let it deleted.
Just an FYI here, since I finally found an answer that works. Well, the answer given in post #5 was correct, although not complete.

It is actually in "/usr/share/applications/org.opensuse.opensuse_welcome.desktop"
To disable, you need to copy to “/home/user/.config/autostart” and then modify it to disable. That’s what should happen with my suggestion in an earlier post in this thread (post #5).
After copying to /home/user/.config/autostart I added the line “NotShowIn=KDE” in order to disable the green welcome screen. “NoDisplay=true” and “hidden=true” did not work. (BTW, I’m sure replacing KDE with Gnome or XFCE or MATE will do the same thing.)
I spent time looking for the boolean that would be changed when one checked the “Do not show again” box in a working opensuse-welcome window to no avail. What happens when you check that box? I’d love to know.
