When I use "Edit original" to open a legacy file, how do I know the project file location

Hey team,

If I render a video in After Effects and choose the "Include project link" function, the next time when I import the video and click "Edit original" After Effects can automatically open the original project file.

My question is how do I know where the open files are saved? 

  1. I only know part of the file location info will be shown on the top bar. I can't use "show in folder" to trace the project file.
  2. If the file is not opened by the same version of After Effects, the file would be opened in a converted way, which still can't find the original file location.
Import and export , User interface or workspaces
