How to change default directory for File Browser?

  1. How do I change the default directory for File Browser in Photoshop 7?
    Whenever I start Photoshop is automatically starts the file browser in the
    My Documents\My Photos directory. Can I change this to a different default?

    For me it's sticky. The directory where I left it, is where PS7 Browser
    opens again. Windows.

    Martin, another thing you can do, which helps a bit, is to put your most
    frequently visited folder in the favorites within the file browser. I you
    haven't done this before, just select the folder that you will want to open
    most often, (this is within the File Browser window). Click on File and Add
    to Favorites. Now, just above the thumbnails, pull down the menu and your
    folder will be listed in the favorites. Right now I have 3 folders there
    that I use a lot and it is a 2 key click process to get to where I want to
    be. I will also repeat what Diane has said. Mine usually goes back to where
    I was last. Otherwise, I don't think there is a place where it allows you to
    choose a default folder to open. I could be wrong, since there are so many
    things that PSCS will do and I doubt if I will ever find everything in my
    life time.

  4. Thanks for the suggestions-I'll give them a trial. There is probably a
    registry hack that allows you change the default directory but I'm not about
    try to monkeying with my registry without knowing what I'm doing.

    Back in the '80's my Atari St had a great little feature that allowed
    one to assign a directory to a function key for one touch navigation
    when the file selector was open.

    When I find myself clicking thru folder after folder, I sometimes
    wonder why Windows has never reached this level of sophistication.
