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?
