IDEA 7.0.3 default directory for Open Project

I'm new to IDEA, and am using it to take my first course in Java. Two weeks into the course, I'm VERY happy with my choice of IDE.

My question is:

On the Welcome! screen there is the Open Project link. Is there a way to specify a default directory for this? Currently IDEA seems to open the Select Path dialog to the last project I worked on. I'd rather have it start at my C:\Documents and Settings\+User_name+\IdeaProjects directory. Do I have control over this?

Thanks.
