      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.

      Ok everyone hold on, I figured out how to change where VS stores the template directories. Follow this link it shows where they are:

      I'm also running into this problem, as I relocated the special Documents folder to another disk with much larger room. So what does Visual Studio do? it creates a new Documents folder in my account directory on the root drive which shadows my relocated special Documents, making it impossible to navigate to. VS does not even use the special folder location but basically hard codes where the template files should go, moronic!
