I have an autohotkey script running and added this line:

#e::run c:\public

and that overrode the system setting. You could put any location in there.

(or any action, really, this is autohotkey... :)

They actually have a page on this: autohotkey.com/docs/misc/Override.htm –  yhw42 Sep 3 '10 at 21:38
BTW: which OS do you have? –  yhw42 Sep 3 '10 at 21:43
win7. looking for a native solution though - trying to avoid adding yet another little utility to keep track of –  kenwarner Sep 3 '10 at 22:21

No, these are not customizable. You may create another hot key for windows using third party software though, there's a lot out there.

Here's one which may work (maybe, it was a quick google search) https://mysite.uchicago.edu/personal/bsdad_rcarter/Blog/Lists/Posts/Post.aspx?List=ec587393-9b2f-46b0-87d6-a594b1e8d383&ID=88
