Change the default folder when opening documents

P: n/a
I have a user who stores her documents on a different drive and when she
attempts to open documents it auto defaults to My Documents instead of her
other drive. Is there a way to change the default for her?

What code are you using to open documents?

Hi Peter,

The user would like to have her drive be the default when opening Adobe
documents instead of My documents. She is using Windows XP SP2.

This forum is for discussing software development in .NET.

Normally, Windows keeps track of the last-opened folder in the File
open/save dialogs per application. I don't know what Adobe is doing to open
documents, it may be that what they've done has circumvented this feature of
Windows. In any case, this is off-topic for this forum and is likely more
appropriate for an Adobe forum like
http://www.adobeforums.com/cgi-bin/webx/.3bbeda8b/ (assuming "Adobe document"
means an Acrobat document).
