cmd.exe starts in
%userprofile% when I start it normally. When I start it from vim, it starts in
How can I change this so it starts in a folder of my choice (from vim)?
It looks like cmd.exe isn't using %systemroot%\system32 as it's starting path when running from vim. %systemroot%\system32 is just where cmd.exe is located. The working directory is still the same as when starting cmd normally.
