    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.

    So now we have C:\Users\<User>\Source\, which I don't like but oh well. I've changed it to my own projects folder so no harm. However we still have the junk project/item templates which should be in AppData really. Worst of all, visual studio still makes the stupid 'StartPages' folder and there's no option to change it. The folder doesn't even contain anything. Problem not fixed. You'd think MS of all companies would be respecting the purpose of various windows directories the most. Unreal.
