Change the Project Name, Root, Description, and Startup Folder

In Simulink® Project, use the Project root tree node to edit the project name or add a description. If you edit the name or description, click Apply to save your changes.

You can view the project root folder, and click Set as Current Folder to change the current working folder to your project root. You can change your project root by moving your entire project on your file system, and reopening your project in its new location. All project file paths are stored as relative paths.

The check box option Change current folder to project root on start up is selected by default. Clear the check box if you do not want to change to the project root folder on startup.

You can also configure startup shortcut scripts that set the current folder and perform other setup tasks. If you configure startup shortcuts to set the current folder, your shortcut setting takes precedence over the check box at the Project node. To set up shortcuts, see Automate Startup Tasks with Shortcuts.

If your project is under source control, you can view source control information at the root node. See Add a Project to Source Control.
