To change permanently the default starting working directory, you can add a SetDirectoy["the_path_you_want"] command in the kernel initialization file init.m (you can edit it with any text editor). Beware that the location of this file depends on the version of Mathematica and the platform you are using. See the FAQ " How do I get the kernel to automatically run commands at startup?" for more info. <http://support.wolfram.com/mathematica/kernel/files/initmconfigure.html> Also, the following thread might be worth reading: "newbie: how to permanently change default directory" <http://forums.wolfram.com/mathgroup/archive/2001/Nov/msg00017.html> HTH, -- Jean-Marc
