    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.

    "As far as I can tell, applications should use "My Documents" for any documents that are intended to be explicitly managed by the user or visible to the user"

    Code is not documents. It doesn't belong in my documents.

    Regardless, the inability to rid ourselves of these folders, even after designating a different folder in the application settings, is absurd.
