 +Make sure Mixxx is closed, then look for "​mixxxdb.sqlite"​ (or "​mixxxtrack.xml"​ if using Mixxx 1.8.x or below) in:
 +  * Windows: ''​%USERPROFILE%\Local Settings\Application Data\Mixxx''​
 +  * Linux/​BSD/​Unix:​ ''​~/​.mixxx''  ​
 +  * Mac OS X: ''​~/​Library/​Application Support/​Mixxx/''​
 +    * If using Mixxx 1.8.x or below it is just like on Linux in ''​~/​.mixxx''  ​
 +
 +If you can't find it, search your computer for "​mixxxdb.sqlite"​ (or "​mixxxtrack.xml"​ if using Mixxx 1.8.x or below)
 +  * If on Windows, Click Start->​Run,​ type ''​%USERPROFILE%\Local Settings\Application Data\Mixxx''​ and click OK. 
 +    * If you want to use "Find files/​folders",​ make sure to open "​Advanced Options"​ and mark "​Search Hidden Files/​Folders"​.
 +  * If on Mac OSX, press Shift-Command-G or "Go to folder..."​ command in the Finder'​s Go menu. Then enter ''​~/​Library/​Application Support/​Mixxx/''​.
