    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.

    It's not only in VS, they did these same things in other applications as well, e.g., Outlook .NST files. What they do not realize that even on today's date C drive size matters, especially when you have a limited size SSD drive in place.
