How to start 3d printing in center of bed?

It should print in the center by default.  When you add an STL it should put it in the center.

 

Is it printing in the corner?  If so then...

Go to left side of screen in PREPARE mode.  Click on your printer, then do "manage printers" then "machine settings", Uncheck "origin at center".  Also check the dimensions of your bed - for example, if it says your bed is 100mm wide but it is actually 200mm wide then it will be printing on the left half of your print bed.

 

The dimensions should not be the actual dimensions of your print bed but the range of motion for the axes which may be smaller than your print bed.
