Am using VB 6 SP 4.

When using File/Open Project, the Open Project dialog box pops up. The default folder is the VB98 folder under the Visual Studio install folder.

Is there any method to change the default setting for this?

to change that behavior, you need to change the settings for the VB6 shortcut icon (for me its the one in the start menu.) Find the VB shortcut that you use to open VB, right click it and click "Properties". Then change "Start in" to whatever you want (for instance "C:\VB Practice\").

hope this helps!

Once you have opened a project, clicking Recent will provide a list to you of projects and relative paths.  This is what I use rather than browsing from the Open window.
