Changing the default path of a Hyperlink

Justincut asked
Hi, every time  I insert a Hyperlink in Excel, its defaults back to a folder called 2014 and not to the one called 2015 so I have to switch folders repeatedly. How does one change the default path on a Hyperlink?

Is it using the location here:
File.. Options.. Save.. Default File Location
If so, change it...

Or, copy the path from somewhere else, and just paste it into the Hyperlink box (shortcut: CTRL+K)

I have a couple of files open, both from different folders.

When I go to Insert a hyperlink in either of them, the "Look In" option where you specify the folder shows the folder in which the file into which you are inserting the hyperlink is saved.
