there's no such feature ready to use in HFS, so you need to make it yourself using cookies and javascript.
Logic will be:

if !welcome_cookie then
  set welcome_cookie
  remember current page address in another cookie
  redirect to welcome page

and in the welcome page, a "continue" button that redirect to the saved address.

This requires some work if you are good with javascript.
Or days of headaches if you are not.

more: it could be done as a sort of plugin by an advanced and willing user, for the good of others :)

What i did for a welcome screen was make a quick template html template with images serving as the different options and added the template as an overlay for the / root.
