Default save location - easy

When I first open VB6, and create a project, then save it, it always starts in a folder that is way off the path that I would like it to start on.  It's always the same path and is one that I used a long time ago.  I can't find anywhere to change that.  Does anyone know where I can change this at?

    Hi ahammar
    make a shortcut of vbX.exe in your desktop or taskbar, right click on Properties and in the "Start in" text box enter the path you want.
