But yes, you need to keep track of the directories you put projects in if you use different directories. You can always search for *.chproj files in that case. Double clicking on that file will open up CH on that project.

In addition to Alan’s point about finding/opening previous projects, note that each project internally holds its entire history of all changes even across quit/relaunch, except when cleared (via Save As, Clear History, or updating across a major app version). To see this history, see the History panel accessed via Window > History.
