Recovering editor window scripts

2 views (last 30 days)
I had a problem with my 2017b licence and was told to uninstall and reinstall the latest version. When I reinstalled the 2020a version I find I ahve lost all my scripts that I had in the editor window. Is there any way to recover these?

Do you know the location of the directory where the scripts were saved?

Thanks for the response, but I did manage to find them just by searching for "matlab" in explorer and when I double clicked on them they then were reintated in the editor window.
