  • Mood:


I have to use Windows at work. And frequently, I have to open files, which triggers the usual browser: here's a list of files in a particular directory. Pick one, or move elsewhere.

I am appalled at how infrequently this process starts at the "right" place.

It tends to be in the right directory about once a month, as far as I can see. It's always at "C:/", or "My Documents", or some place I used three weeks ago.

Current directory - where the current file was opened from - would make sense. Where the program resides is an amazingly stupid place to start.

A "Home" directory would be another acceptable location - at least it's only a short browse from there to common storage areas.

I dread to think how many hours this process wastes, daily, worldwide.
