Save projects to desktop folder

Answered

I would like to save my projects in a folder on my desktop in windows 10.

However, when I attempt to create a new project and navigate to Project Location by clicking on ellipsis, Desktop does  appear as a location.

Is it possible to save to a non-default project location?

There may be some permissions issue with the system not allowing you to save the files on Desktop.

You can override the default location here:

When I attempt to set a default directory in this way I don't see the Desktop location:

It could be some system permissions issue. I can't reproduce it on my Windows 10 installation. It may help if you start IntelliJ IDEA as Administrator.
