I'm trying to change the default saving path to my specfied path for example if the file is picture (.jpg .gif etc..) and using google chrome I save an image the path can be anything from default or last used so I want it to be mine specfied for example I choose "C:\SaveHerePics"

I don't know how you can change it maybe Registry? Dll?

I would like to create program with textbox you choose the new location to be located every time for example "C:\SaveHerePics" and it should not have anything to do with this program even if you close the program the default location for pictures saved via any program or source saved to "C:\SaveHerePics"

Thanks a lot for your help!

There is no such Windows default. It is up to the application programmer to remember such information. Over to you. – David Heffernan Apr 14 '12 at 14:27
is there a way to manipulate it? – Mark Apr 14 '12 at 15:09
There is nothing to manipulate. There is no system wide setting. Each program does its own thing. – David Heffernan Apr 14 '12 at 15:11
