Cannot find RStudio-Desktop file

I need to reset RStudio's desktop state on my mac, because my session is frozen upon reboot. I read that I need to backup the ~/.rstudio-desktop folder, so that RStudio creates a new one upon reboot, thus resetting the state. However, I have no existing ~/.rstudio-desktop folder, yet RStudio is still not creating a new one upon reboot. I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling both R and RStudio, and deleting every R-related file on my computer. Somehow, RStudio still reboots to the same frozen crash reporting screen. R itself works fine, it's just RStudio isnt regenerating the RStudio-Desktop folder.

If you are using the new 1.4 version of RStudio, you need to remove the folder ~/.local/share/rstudio instead on macOS. Does that do what you want?

Yes! I used:
mv ~/.local/share/rstudio ~/.local/share/backup-rstudio
and that did the trick. Thank you!
