Reckon Personal changing data location

HI,  I have moved all my data files from C:\ to D:\   When opening Reckon Personal 2018, I am asked if i am a new user, or wish to open an existing file
I browse to the D:\ and can open the file.
I can back up to my D:\
But when i close, then re-open - I am again asked if I am a new user, or open an existing file, and required to browse to location
Prior to relocating my data to D:\, it would open no issue to the latest file
I have reinstalled - hoping to reset the location of the data file, done the validations, super-validations etc.
HOW DO WE GET THE SOFTWARE TO GO TO THE LAST LOCATION, OR RESET THE LOCATION TO D:\ WITHOUT HAVING TO GOING BROWSE EVERY TIME?? - please.....

It has got something to do with the name of the file. Close that new user window. Navigate to and rename the QDF file to a single word, no spaces, then click on file, open and navigate to the file. Then back it up.

:-)   Thank you, that worked.  Could debate why Reckon cannot get a simple set-up configuration in the program menu - but as it is Christmas, I wont waste anyone's time.
Appreciate your response, and take care...............
