Jupyter Lab error

Hi folks:
I am new to the Jupyter project and just getting started.
I am getting an error when I try to launch a new text or MD files from Launcher.
“Unexpected error while saving file: untitled.md [Errno 30] Read-only file system: ‘/untitled.md’”
Same error with a text file but txt extension.
I am running a Mac M1 with 13.2.1
My Jupyter Notebook and Lab installs were done through pip3 and Brew respectively.
This error occurs from the Launcher or the menu New → method.

I know the new Macs and Ventura have much stricter reules for apps writing to the HDD. It looks like that might be the cause but thought the community here might be able to point me in the right direction.
Initial Google searches for this issue with respect to Jupyter Labs did not produce anything of value.

Solved my problem. Was trying to save to root dir.
Changed dir on left menu and boom, works.
