    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.

    That location would seem good to me.
    I'm trying to avoid it defaulting to redirected company network drives (v. slow)
    We're migrating the company to OneDrive and using that for redirecting default folders. When re-directing there the c# folder name is illegal. so get it out of 'My Documents' get the IT Pro/Admin votes.
