Home directory is server-side settings. You cannot change it from WinSCP. However you can instruct WinSCP to use some specific directory as default instead of home directory. See "Directories" tab on login dialog.

I have the same issue, and was told that Jail would be the program to use, though I haven't gotten it working yet.

Better luck to you!

Jail can be used to force user to stay only in some (usualy home) directory (or its subdirectories). IMHO it is not a usual way to change home directory.
