In the beginning things often saved where I didn't want them in spite of my best efforts, and the only way to get them where I wanted was to let the machine have its way and then move the file. I still think the machine makes a mystery of file paths all too often and wonder if that's why a lot of threads in this forum are people who can't find things asking for help. Maybe there's a setting I haven't found. I want to see the entire file path in the title bar always. If there's a way to have this show in Scrivener, for instance, I haven't found it.

Sure, although it is an option, so not difficult to change. I’d be lost without easy access to mission control, exposé, and display switching, though.

I'm wondering whether part of the "where are my files" issue is that macOS expects a user's files to be in their home directory, which is where they have appropriate permissions.
