    Accepted Solution

    Only if the application allows you to do so, sorry. It's completely up to the application which path it offers as default for saving a file, and whether it remembers the last folder used or always starts in the same folder.

    To make it easer, first time you try to save, add a shortcut to folder you like. Next time it'll be a click away from where you want.
