I can run as Administrator in Anaconda Prompt by right-clicking Anaconda Prompt in Windows, but I haven’t been able to ascertain how to run as Administrator in Notebooks.

We are happy to help, the problem that you are experiencing is due to an error in the configuration, let’s try this and see if that fixes your problem:

jupyter lab --notebook-dir=‘/home’ --preferred-dir=‘/home/USERNAME’

Please let us know if that worked for you.
