Topic "Change local home directory"

Author Message


How do I change the default local home directory?
I may want WinSCP to ALWAYS start in C:\Temp or C:\Download or something of my own choice,
not way down the folder tree...

I find the tip in the FAQ to change the "My Documents" location in Windows
a bit patronizing and quite silly.

An option in the preference section for an alternate location of the home directory
should be possible, shouldn't it?

But for that, en excellent product.
