How to Change Startup folder

Does anyone know how to change the directory to begin looking for projects in?
We store our projects (.scp .sdc files) in a network folder so they can be shared amongst developers.
When we start up SQL Compare or SQL Data Compare, the Projects screen, Look in: dropdown lists a
local workstation directory. It seems a pretty basic functionality, to control the "look in" location.

    Hi there

    If I'm understanding you correctly, there's a little browse button to the right of the dropdown (labelled [...]) that lets you change the folder to look in. Does this do what you want?

    Thanks for the timely reply. The browse button does indeed allow me to get to the end result. Manually, that is. What I am asking about is to be able to store the location that I would navigate to in a similar fashion as what you would see on the Tools, Application Options screen under the filter folder or default folder text boxes.

    In other words, I would like to be able to set the folder that Look in starts at just one time, rather than having to navigate and traverse network directories every single time I open a Redgate product.

    Thanks again!

    Ah, I see. I think the dropdown is supposed to remember previous folders that you've visited, but it looks like it might remove items from the most-recently-used list if it doesn't think the folders are invalid or don't exist - maybe the network directories are confusing it.

    Anyway, I think it would be super cool if we had a textbox where we could override it's starting point. For our agency(...and I suspect for a large chunk of the world...) it needs to be pointable to a shared location. Thanks!
