one of two ways: set your layout order with the desired layout appearing first.
or you can create a script to run on opening which takes the user to the desired layout
...or set the default opening layout into:
File >> File Options...>> Tab Open/Close >> Checbox: Switch to layout...
Thanks knew it would be a option somewhere :)

As noted below, you can set the layout to open when you open your database file by using the File->File Options menu, ->Open tab setting, but this seems to be for developers (like us?) opening their projects.
To insure all users get the proper / desired initial layout, the other solution mentioned below -- File-->File Options -->(tab) Script Triggers -- gives you access to an event "OnFirstWindowOpen" that will run a script -- a simple "open layout..." with the desired layout selected does the trick.
New here so hope this is helpful. I had this question and meant it in the sense not tied to how *I* open the database, but for other users.
