    Hello,

    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.

    IT enforces a folder redirection gpo on user\Documents; so Microsoft make sure not to pollute this with HUGE files and ANYTHING not a document.
    OR provide a simple setting to put VS folders somewhere locally not affected by AD enforced GPOs.
    THX!
