Q: I moved my notebooks data files from one folder to another folder on my computer, thereby changing the file path. Now when I launch Notebooks it gives me the ‘Welcome to Notebooks’ intro, but I can’t access the data files. How do I get Notebooks to locate/read the data files?

One of Notebooks’ preferences is the Home folder, the directory on your computer where Notebooks stores its documents. When you move your documents to a different folder, you just need to change Notebooks’ Home, make sure it points to the folder, and your documents will reappear in Notebooks.

Changing Notebooks’ Home is non destructive, and you can even use that to switch between different sets of documents on your computer.
