Is there a way to modify the path for ".." ( shortcut ) ?
1 view (last 30 days)
Whenever I download repositories from my team from other departments they have scripts which are runned from a path which contain ".." and I do not know how to change on my MATLAB workstation the parent path for it. For example:
On their workstation this code works but on my workstation it says that:
"there is no ..\03_config\config.m not found."
and I know that the ".." is the parent directory from the project. My question is:
"How can I change the default parent directory so that ".." can work on my workstation too?

You can change the startup folder; see https://www.mathworks.com/help/matlab/matlab_env/matlab-startup-folder.html
The effect of this is that when you start MATLAB, MATLAB would automatically cd() to that directory.
I do not generally recommend this, except for the case where you have moved your hierarchy of MATLAB files to an unusual location.
