What’s the QAP working directory?

The working directory is the folder where the QAP settings file QuickAccessPopup.ini is saved and updated.

If you installed QAP using the "one-step installation" procedure, the working directory is [user folder]\AppData\Roaming\Quick Access Popup (for example, C:\Users\Jean\AppData\Roaming\Quick Access Popup).

If you preferred the portable installation, by default the working directory is where the QuickAccessPopup.exe program is running.

In any case, you can set your own working directory by editing the QAP shortcut in the Startup folder (or create your own shortcut) and set the working directory in the Start in: field of the shortcut.

    Hi, just a little technical note.
    I like to manage my own startup programs with a script, so the script needs to
    indicate the working directory or QAP will grab the wrong QuickAccessPopup.ini.
    Your notes above really helped me to figure out why just starting QAP without
    specifying the working directory would always grab the default QuickAccessPopup.ini
    rather than my modified version with all my favorites etc.
    So thanks for pointing that out above. Helped a lot.
