    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.

    How do we get our development team to use the Development share on the server?

    Old thread, but total frustration warrants a bump. I just changed in the registry the paths to point to our Development share on our server. Upon opening VWDExpress 2010, the settings were ignored, and in fact ALL the registry settings were changed back to the "My Documents" share on the server! "My Documents" is set by GPO to a server share ("My" documents for "Our" documents, wow if only Microsoft considered that their OS might be used in a business).

    "DefaultFileOpenLocation", "DefaultNewProjectLocation", etc. now mapped to Server's "My Documents" share. NO! PLEASE STOP making us browse to our Development share! Such a waste of time. *fuming at all the wasted time over something so stupid*
