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.

Personally, I created a folder under <User> called Development that I use for my project files so that so that I have something similar to My Documents, My Music, My Pictures, etc. specifically for development. I too would like to move any related VS configuration to that location. I'm currently still on Ultimate 2013 so I don't know if that's a change in 2015/2017. Hope to migrate soon but as a Solutions Engineer, scripter, developer, I was relegated to what license we had at the time.
