MATLAB startup M-file for single-user systems or system administrators
At startup time, MATLAB automatically executes the master M-file
matlabrc.m and, if it exists,
startup.m. On multiuser or networked systems,
matlabrc.m is reserved for use by the system manager. The file
matlabrc.m invokes the file
startup.m if it exists on the MATLAB search path.
As an individual user, you can create a startup file in your own MATLAB directory. Use the startup file to define physical constants, engineering conversion factors, graphics defaults, or anything else you want predefined in your workspace.
matlabrc is actually invoked by MATLAB at startup. However,
matlabrc.m contains the statements
startup.m. Extend this process to create additional startup M-files, if required.
You can also start MATLAB using options you define at the Command Window prompt or in your Windows shortcut for MATLAB.
Turning Off the Figure Window Toolbar
If you do not want the toolbar to appear in the figure window, remove the comment marks from the following line in the
matlabrc.m file, or create a similar line in your own
