Shortcuts option in Tools menu

By using the Shortcuts submenu in the Tools menu, Pega Robot Studio provides quick access to folders and configuration files that are commonly used when developing automation solutions. You don't need to search for and open these folders and files manually, but can instead open them directly by clicking Tools > Shortcuts in the menu toolbar. You can use these files and folders to set the logging level, configure some components, such as Assisted Sign-On, or set information that helps Pega Robot Studio cooperate with other applications.

Folders shortcuts

The Folders submenu gives access to three file locations:

  • App data, which contains configuration and log files.
  • Program data, which contains configuration files.
  • Logs, which contains log files: PegaRobotStudio, PegaRobotRuntime.

For more information about Pega Robot Studio log files, see: Diagnostic settings
