Hi there,

Getting everybody set up in the correct working directory at the start of this lesson seems to reliably take ~10 minutes (or more...). While the GUI Session -> Set Working Directory -> Choose Directory... method is in the teaching material, I think using tab complete (works in both R and RStudio) makes more sense, as it reinforces the use of tab complete seen in the Unix lesson and also the move away from point and click computer use.

Hello :-) In case you mean tabbing to expand a setwd(dir = "…") command, I agree.
