On Apple Macs running OS X, filenames starting with "." do not show up in Finder. To make simplify access to the Gramps user directory easy, open a terminal window with Finder-Applications-Utilities-using the Terminal application and type there: ln -s ~/.gramps gramps_user_directory~/Documents/Grampswhich will allow make Finder to show the contentsdirectory as a folder in your Documents folder named "Gramps". (You can replace "Gramps" with whatever name you wish, but use a / before any spaces. Or ) Alternatively you can simply click on [https://osxdaily.com/2011/08/31/go-to-folder-useful-mac-os-x-keyboard-shortcut/ {{man menu|Go -> 'Go to Folder...'}}] in the Finder, and type
~/.gramps
in the resulting macOS {{man label|Go to the Folder}} dialog box.
====MacOS Application Package====The default location for the [[Mac OS X:Application package]] isuses a different, more MacOS-standard default location for the directory:
/Users/'''''<~username>'''''/Library/Application Support/gramps
* [https://support.microsoft.com/en-ca/help/14201/windows-show-hidden-files Show hidden files - Windows Help]
The default location for an installation on a Windows 7 (and newer) system is
C:\Program Files\GrampsAIO64-5.X.X
or
C:\Program Files (x86)\GrampsAIO32-5.X.X
The default '''User Directory''' location for any Gramps user data on a Windows 7 (and newer) system is
C:\Users\'''''<~username>'''''\AppData\Roaming\gramps
The default location for any Gramps user data on a Windows 7 (and newer) system is C:\Users\'''''<~username>'''''\AppData\Roaming\grampsin the above filepath is a placeholder for the particular user name chosen when logging into Windows.
Alternately, you can leverage the '''%AppData%''' [https://wikipedia.org/wiki/Environment_variable#APPDATA environment variable] to avoid dealing the complications of active user names. Although Gramps will not recognize Environment Variables for paths internally, you can use them within Windows to find Gramps user files. The '''Gramps user directory''' path above is simplified to:
%AppData%\gramps
 
<hr />
Like the '''User Directory''', the location for programs/applications is also hidden from browsing with Windows Explorer.
 
The default location for an installation on a Windows 7 (and newer) system is
