Loading Data without Lib Path

I Want to know can we load the data without having this lib connection path.

For an example in qlikview when we will load the data it will come like
(

FROM

(ooxml, embedded labels, table is Categories);

)
But We see in Qliksense it will come like
(

FROM [lib://Downloads/Sales Multi Table.xlsx]

(ooxml, embedded labels, table is Categories);

)
so in this I want to know why this extra 'lib' is there and also is there any alternative of this 'lib' if we don't want to use it here or if we do some settings anywhere?
Please help me in that.

Hi,

Its a UNC path which is good to use. Folder data connections ‒ Qlik Sense

But you can also change that and make it work old way.For that you will have to change the setting to standard mode.
