Can you change the Foobar default folder?

I'm kind of a long time casual FooBar 2000 User.

I'm still using FooBar2000 0.9.4.3, but I didn't see a way to do this in Foobar 1.1.8 either - but it seems like it should be simple enough.

I only use FooBar for converting files, but it's a great program.

Anyway - when I launch FB and select Add Directory, it points to G:\My Documents (I think). I want it to point to something like G:\Data\Music\Temp\New\ (and then I can drill down from there).

I tried typing that in manually, but it didn't work the next time I opened FB.

FB will typically open to the last folder I selected, but I typically move the files so that folder no longer exists.

Thanks in advance!!!

This is similar to what I am looking for from MP3Tag - the middle option - favorite folder and "Start From This Folder" - I just don't know if something similar exists for Foobar or if it could be added (or if I could modify a command line or other shortcut to specify that).

Thanks!

Okay, I "almost" got it to do what I want.

I think if I make a shortcut with "foobar2000 \addlocation G:\data\music\temp\new" it will scan all files in subdirectories of that (I think I can disable that, but forget how) and play one file, and then I can click stop and clear files and "Add Folder" should default to G:\data\music\temp\new.

Still not ideal, but it's a starting point.
