you seem to have mixed 2 different things:
1) changing a working directory - see ?setwd, ?getwd
However, this will NOT load another .Rdata file.

2) loading data - see ?load and ?save, ?save.image - loading new data 
image will erase all currently stored objects.

There is an icon on my desktop for each project so all I have to do is click on the icon to open R for a specific project, i.e. a specific .RData file.  How do I change to another .RData file from within R without first closing R?
