How do I change the default path in my Borland C++ Compiler when I use File|Open ?  Every time I start running the Builder the File|Open path always defaults to
C:\ProgramFile\Borland\CBuilder5\Projects.  After I change the path to something else, it remembers this path and it becomes the default.

Hi farcuri,

When the IDE is opened, it defaults to the "projects" directory.  When a project is opened, the IDE defaults to the path of the open project.  When you explicitly open a file (via the File/Open dialog box) the default location becomes the directory of the last opened file.

I don't believe that you can change that behavior.
