I am using EndNote X4 and, for some reason, when I opened the program today, it did not start off with My Library (which it usually does).
So, when I tried to open My Library manually, I couldn’t figure out where My Library was being stored in my PC.
I looked in the local drive, Program Files, EndNote X4, but didn’t find My Library in there. I did come across the example libraries which came with EndNote.
Does anyone know where EndNote X4 stores the libraries in a PC?
If you think I have other problems going on here (like why EndNote didn’t start off with My Library like it usually does), please let me know as well.
Thanks for the help.
- Check/Change EndNote’s Preferences setting for Libraries so it’s set to: Open the most recently used library. Click OK to close the dialog box, close EndNote then restart the program. (Go to the toolbar, select EDIT, PREFERENCES, click on Library - see attached image).
Or if you have only the one library (My Library) you could change the setting to: Open the specified libraries. Then type-in the name of tne EndNote library in the libraries box.
- Use the Windows search feature by typing in the name of the EndNote library.
cool! Thanks, loco gecko! :manhappy:
And for now, if you can’t find it still, you could try creating a new library and it is likely that will be in the same “default” folder. This is usually set to My documents.
I have a related question: I have two computers, one at work and one at home. The one at home has been set to a different endnote library than the other. How can I see the set path of the two? That is, see the set location of the two libraries in the directory in EndNote? By set path I mean for instance C./myDocuments etc.
You mean for syncing as one? – I believe the location is hidden in the reg file on a PC.
it is always a good idea to backup the Reg file before messing with it though.
