Fade In stores some information in a special folder on your computer. This includes things like dictionary files, autosave backups, shortcut key mappings, system reports, and other things (but not document files).


Press the Windows key, then R to show the Run window. Then type:


and hit Enter. That will bring up an Explorer window with a number of folders in it. One of them will be called Fade In. Double-click on that.

Note: %APPDATA% is a shortcut for C:\Users\<Username>\AppData\Roaming.


From the Finder, choose Go > Go To Folder, and type:

~/Library/Application Support/Fade In (don't forget the leading "~")

For the Mac App Store version you'll need to type:

~/⁨Library⁩/⁨Containers/com.generalcoffee.fadein⁩/Data⁩/Library/⁨Application Support⁩/Fade In
