Ellen, The cure for this is usually to use File->Open from the menu, navigate to where your data file is located, i.e. your Desktop,and open the file from the dialog. If you then save it once GnuCash is open.Hopefully Gnucash then will remember the location next time it is opened. The other way is to navigate to the data file in the File Explorer, right click and the use the Open with option to select GnuCash to open it. Once you have opened it either of these ways GnuCash should remember the correct location. If not it is something more specific then come back to the list.
