Change Apps Installation Folder

By default, MATLAB® installs apps from .mlappinstall files in the userpath \Apps\appname folder. The userpath is the path returned by userpath, and appname is the name of the installed app (sometimes with an additional character added to the name).

To change the apps installation folder:

  1. On the Home tab, in the Environment section, click Preferences > MATLAB > Apps.

  2. In the Apps Install Folder field, specify a folder name to which you have write access.

  3. Click OK.

    Note:   If you change the app installation folder, then apps installed before the change are no longer accessible from the apps gallery. Apps installed with MATLAB products are an exception. To make inaccessible apps accessible again, move their appname folders and contents to the new installation folder, and then restart MATLAB.
