I am facing the following issue while opening SQL worksheet in SQL developer

Popup with Error Message --> "An error occurred while opening ide.worksheet.file:/C:/users/%USERNAME%/Appdata/Local/Temp/worksheet....."

After clicking on OK I am able to continue work as usual.

I am not able to determine what is causing this problem. I do not want this pop up coming up every time I start a new worksheet.

Any help is highly appreciated.

    sounds like you don't have write access to the AppData directory - which would be weird. try running SQLDev as an admin user. Aug 18, 2016 at 18:58

I was also facing the same issue. While running SQL Developer with Run as Administrator option, I was able to open worksheets.
