ChimeraX docs icon

Command: pwd


The command pwd reports the current working directory in the Log. The working directory can be changed with the cd command. See also: open, save

Upon startup with the ChimeraX icon, the initial working directory is ~/ (user's home directory) on Linux and ~/Desktop on Windows and Mac. Startup from the system command line uses the current shell directory instead.
