Library File in Arduino Beta

I can only find the library directory in Arduino 1, but not in the Arduino Beta directory.

Is this correct?

Hi @Bob_Cubells. Thanks for taking the time to give the beta phase Arduino IDE 2.x a try!

It's not clear to me what you mean by "library directory". Would you mind providing a more detailed description so I can understand your question?

If you look at the Arduino Program 1 directory, you find a folder called Library. In this directory is where I copy any downloaded libraries.

I have installed Arduino Beta, which by the way, it makes life easier, I can't find its library folder.

All this issue is because if I download a zipped file, I find that the Library manage does does not unzip correctly. Therefore, with Arduino 1 I unzipped manually and then copied unzipped libraries to the library folder.

So in resume, I would like to know where to copy my downloaded unzipped libraries with Beta.

Thanks in advance for help.

The folder name is libraries.

You should never put anything in the Arduino IDE installation folder. The reason is that it will all be lost every time you update to a new version. The correct place to install libraries is the libraries subfolder of your sketchbook folder. You can find the location of the sketchbook folder in the Arduino IDE's File > Preferences.

The libraries subfolder of the classic Arduino IDE contains a collection of fundamental common Arduino libraries as well as some obsolete relics from before there was an effective way of distributing libraries.

Arduino IDE 2.x does not currently come with any of these bundled libraries, and so has not need for such a folder in the IDE installation. So the only place it will recognize installed libraries is from the sketchbook folder. But this is no problem because that's where you should be putting your libraries anyway.

The libraries subfolder of the sketchbook.
