# [IPython-dev] changing working directory from IPython server

Hello List,

I know this has been discussed before, but it doesn't seem to be resolved.

Currently (v.2.1 on my machine) I can start an IPython notebook server
anywhere.
Then click and open an IPython Notebook anywhere else.
That IPython Notebook then gets copied to the directory where I started the
server.

Problem with that workflow is that that is rarely what you want it to do.

Is there any way, or are there any plans, to be able to change the working
directory from the Notebook server page (the one that opens when you type
'ipython notebook')? It would make my life, and that of my students, SO
much easier.

Thanks for all the great work.

Mark
