Hello! The desktop folder on a Mac is referred to as "Desktop Folder", so (on my computer here) the following points to a folder on my desktop... SetDirectory["Macintosh HD:Desktop Folder:Stuff to sort"] The following opens a file on my desktop.... NotebookOpen["Macintosh HD:Desktop Folder:grid.nb"] Hope that helps, Tom De Vries ---------- >From: AES <siegman at stanford.edu> To: mathgroup at smc.vnet.net >To: mathgroup at smc.vnet.net >Subject: [mg24776] [mg24759] SetDirectory[ ] for Folders on the Mac Desktop? >Date: Tue, Aug 8, 2000, 11:32 PM > >How can I SetDiretory[ ] to a folder that's on my Macintosh desktop? > >SetDirectory["myHardDisk:someHardDiskFolder"] works fine. > >SetDirectory["myHardDisk:someDesktopFolder"] doesn't. > >Neither does SetDirectory["myHardDisk:Desktop:someDesktopFolder"]. > >Using the Mac "Get Info" command on someHardDiskFolder or >someDesktopFolder seems to give the same form for either one, i.e. it >doesn't show any explicit "Desktop" aspect in the file path for the >latter case. > >Thanks siegman at stanford.edu > >
