Running Jupyter notebooks in a different folder

When doing demos I am frequently asked how do you point you session of Jupyter Notebooks to a different location than the default? It is really simple to do, once you know how.

Default location

On Windows the default location is in the user you’re logged in as.


Running the command above in an explorer window, will take you there.

Using a different location

If you do not want to run Jupyter here, then all you need to do is open a command prompt (cmd/anaconda) and change the directory to where you want to create the notebooks. Once in the location enter

jupyter notebook

A new session will start and you will now see all the notebooks in that location.


A simple little way to run notebooks in a location of your choice.
