We’ve begun work on this and are considering changing the default location for new projects to C:\\USERPROFILE\Source\repos. Would this be a reasonable change to address the problem of “clutter” in the Documents folder? This is currently the default for cloned repositories, so all projects would be in a singular default location.
As well, you still retain the option to change the default if you’d like.

The most part of errors of Visual Studio and Windows (by XP to Up) is the use of temporary storage into the User space, during the downloads, the unpacking and the installation of the applications, without the housekiping (cleaning the space used and no more useful).
the worst is that the "temporary storage area" is transformed to repository, where the application goes to retrieve assembly, module etc.., instead of go to App Data\App-name.
The assemblies, modules and parts of usefull code, mixed with clobbered data,
waste largest storage area, sometime gratest that the relate applications.
Searching for \Temp directory and file, we can discovery that too much "temporary" files are instead fixed dated files.
