When I open Windows Explorer window from within an application (e.g. Save As, Open, etc.) it opens to the last location that particular handle used. I want it to open to the last location that any handle used.
Note that this is not the same as opening every dialog to a universal default location.
For example, when I am jumping between Adobe Photoshop, Premiere, and After Effects, I have to choose files to import and export within each application, and each combination opens Explorer to the last location that specific function used. This means there are
NumDialogs that are opening to the previous directory I used who knows when, that I then have to manually navigate to the new project directory.
How do I stupify Windows Explorer to not retain specific paths per handle?
Currently my workaround is to have a single Explorer window open to the root of my project directory that I keep grabbing the path from the address bar (
Ctrl+C), and whenever another handle opens, I paste in that path. This still introduces an extra context switch to my workflow in numerous places.
