Default File Location Quicken 2006

Is there a way to change the default file location in Quicken '06?  We keep all of our quicken files on a network drive, and for some of the less computer savvy users to choose file, open and browse to the correct network folder is a bit of a challenge at times.  If I could have file>open start in the network directory where Quicken files are stored it would be ideal.  I see nothing in the program, and so far haven't found an .ini file that specifies this.  Does anyone know the anser?

Thanks,

There may be a registry hack for this, but there's nothing in the program that will allow you to change it.  YOu might search the registry for quicken or the data file and see if you can find it there if you are comfortable with that. I don't have quicken on my system so I can do this.
Two possible workarounds,  usually if you will open a data file from quicken, it will default back to that location, don't know how many files you are talking about, but you could open each one, and they should appear on the recent files list at the bottom of the file menu.
#2,  you could create a short cut to each of the data files, then all the user has to do it click on the shortcut this would open quicken with the appropriate data file.
Hope this helps....
