On my macOS High Sierra v10.13.6

Click Finder > Preferences...

Then on the General tab, click the up and down arrows as shown below - if the desired folder is not shown, select Other and browse to your folder of choice.

Thank you to both.

My thoughts on your answers... I (and most people) get numerous answers back and so when I log back in I usually see 3-4 answers, and not just the first answer.

Owen, I totally agree with you that your answer was in first, and I have nothing wrong with external links, however on the same level I also like the fact that Andrew went to the bother of adding screenshots.

When I logged back in, I quickly scanned the page and answers, and it was Andrew's screenshots that I used to solve my problem, so I didn't need to click on Owen's link. Does that mean Owen was incorrect... no!

Therefore I'm awarding the points equally, even thought I am not sure if technically that is the right thing to do... but it feels right to my situation.

Lastly, thank you to both of you. It is much appreciated.

Thanks. I would have added them had I been on my Mac. That is the problem with trying to answer questions quickly while on a phone or tablet.  There were images at that link as well, so I hoped they would have worked, but I will also take Andrew's comments into consideration and post images when I can (I usually do anyway.)  I appreciate your resolution.
