Which directory is Exchange Powershell 2010 supposed to start in?

Hello experts,

First of all thank you for taking the time to read and answer these posts, y'all are great!

I started up Powershell today to try to troubleshoot and I noticed that it's starting out of the directory C:\Users\username\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\$RECYCLE.BIN which does not look right to me, but I can't find what the default directory would look like. Does this mean it was somehow deleted? How would I go about restoring it? It uses this directory when I'm logged in remotely (which is usually) and when I tried logging in from the actual machine. Any thoughts?

usually it starts in %HOMEDRIVE%%HOMEPATH%.

If you right click your shortcut and go to properties, then set "Start in:" to the path you want it should fix it.

edit:
Use (without quotes): "%HOMEDRIVE%%HOMEPATH%"

EMS usually has an empty "start in" so it should show the system32 directory when you launch it.
