Issue Details

I am using DIAdem and would like for different data to load when my computer starts besides using My DataFinder. How can I change this?


In order to change between using My DataFinder and a different data store, follow these steps:
  1. From the NAVIGATOR tab in DIAdem, select Settings»DIAdem Settings.
  2. Select Data store under Start behavior and browse to the Data store you wish to be the default.

  1. Select OK to exit the NAVIGATOR settings window.
  2. For these settings to take effect, you must save the DIAdem desktop by selecting Settings»Save As.
  3. Save over the current Desktop.DDD file.
Now when you restart your computer, the default will be the data store you selected.

    Additional Information

    If you use a DIAdem legacy version(or DIAdem 2009) and cannot find DIAdem Settings, you should navigate Settings»Options»NAVIGATOR.
