How to set default file location in Illustrator?

I'm using Creative Suite CS5 in Windows Pro 64, and would like to set a default location for files in Illustrator and Photoshop when I execute the File > Open or File > Save commands.


Yes, the program defaults to the location of the last file opened, but sometimes that file is gone, or I'm creating a new one from scratch, and the program looks for files in a distant place in my file structure.


** Is it possible to set a default file location for opening and saving in Illustrator CS5 (and in Photoshop CS5)?

    Not that I know of. It simply reverts to the global "My Documents"/ "Documents" folder as provided by your operating system. these can of course be changed using variables and editing the Windows Registry/ Group Policies, but that affects all programs...
