Jonghee, If you modify the init.m file (path is c:\Program Files\Wofram Reseach\Mathematica\4.1\Configuration\Kernel\init.m") and add the following line of text to the bottom of the file it should do what you want: SetDirectory["C:\Temp"]; You can use a text editor to add the line of text or Mathematica as well. I suggest you first rename the file init.bak and then modify the file and save it as init.m. Restart Mathematica and type Directory[] (in a new notebook to verify that the init.m file works as intended. You can also type the command SetDirectory["C:\Temp"] at the beginning of your notebook to move to the directory you want to go to. However, you would have to do that everytime you start up Mathematica. Chris PS. The Yen signs should really be replaced by the backslash operator under Windows. -----Original Message----- From: Jonghee Lee [mailto:jonghee at glue.umd.edu] To: mathgroup at smc.vnet.net Subject: [mg26509] [mg26499] Launch Directory Whenever my mathematica starts, it sets the current directory under " C:\APPLICATION\MATHEMATICA4.0\ ". Is there any way to change into another directory? For instance, if I like to have it start at " C:\TEMP " everytime I launch mathematica, what do I have do?
