[Chimera-users] Where does Chimera copy command save images?

I have tried to use the command copy on command line to save images, with a goal to do that in a script. The messages of rendering a high-res image and image saved come up, but the file is nowhere to be found. My guess is that the default save location is in the Chimera program folder, which would not be permitted, but Chimera just doesn't see it as a failed attempt. I do have a workaround of including the full path in a filename, but I'm just curious where the file would be going by default, and whether there is some command to change the working folder by a command. FYI it's Chimera 1.15 in Windows 10.
