The .sqliterc file exists in your home directory AFTER YOU CREATE IT. If you have not yet created it, then it does not yet exist. On Windows 10: It is stored in the directory %USERPROFILE% By default, the UserProfile directory is `C:\Users\<userid>\` By default, the sqliterc file is called `C:\Users\<userid>\.sqliterc` The location of the `USERS` directory is set from the registry when the OS boots. The %USERPROFILE% directory is set by default when a user logs on. Like everything in Windows 10, you can change the base User directory and/or the UserProfile directory on a system by system and user by user basis.
