Change MATLAB startup folder

Subject: Change MATLAB startup folder

Dear all,

For some reason after MATLAB was reinstalled, the startup directory changed to system32. I want to set the default directory back to MyDocuments\MATLAB and I can't edit the startup.m file because my computer is on the network.
How can I do that?

Thanks,
Elnaz

You looked at 'Help -> startup'?
Your machine runs Windows, or something else?

I used userpath command and issue resolved.

Thank you very much,
