Question should be straightforward enough. I'm sure every Windows user has had it, is there a way to make Windows always start browsing starting from the current directory, be that using either windows explorer or any other program?

Maybe there is a registry setting that accounts for these, or is it setup per program? Or there is some 3d party program that does this? I am on Windows 8.1 amd64. If anybody knows kindly share.

    What is your definition of "current directory"? – DavidPostill Jun 25 '20 at 15:39

    Start browsing what from the current directory? So you go somewhere in Explorer, you have effectively "browsed" to a location, so what exactly are you expecting to browse? What do you expect to achieve? I feel like there is something missing here. – Mokubai Jun 25 '20 at 15:39
  • "Is there a way to make Windows always start browsing starting from the current directory, be that using either windows explorer or any other program?" - You mean from something like a file selection dialog? – Anaksunaman Jun 25 '20 at 15:43
  • I mean when the explorer dialog opens up prompting you to browse for a file and select it. If a current directory exists it will be the directory where you have opened the current file. – Nikos Jun 25 '20 at 16:24

    @Nikos - You should edit your question and clarify it. You have significantly over estimated the clarity of you question. – Ramhound Jun 25 '20 at 18:23
