Open in dreamweaver. It's just not the easy way. suggest you start "defining sites" for each of the sites you want to work on/ manage in dreamweaver. Otherwise you run the risk of Dw putting in hard coded Hard Drive paths when you make links. Also- Dreamweaver will remember the location of the current "local site folder" and the file open or file browse dialog boxes will start out in the correct base locations.

Default Site - Macromedia Dreamweaver

This has bugged me for months. When I open DW and open a file, DW always defaults to C:\doents and settings\sites. All my web sites have been located in another folder, not even in the C:\doents and settings folder at all. It is another location on my C drive. It takes 8 mouse clicks to get there.

    Default Default Site

    This has bugged me for months. When I open DW and open a file, DW
    always defaults to C:\doents and settings\sites. All my web sites
    have been located in another folder, not even in the C:\doents and
    settings folder at all. It is another location on my C drive. It takes
    8 mouse clicks to get there. How do I change the default folder DW
    opens when I open a file? I'm using XP Home.

    I just installed DW at work on w2k, and it remembers, and opens the
    folder I want, not C:\doents and settings.

    So you don't use the "Site Manager" window???????

    The normal workflow in Dw is to open the app. The Site Manager window opens
    to the last worked on Site. You use the pulldown in the Site Manager window
    to change to a different Site.

    Files are opened by clicking on them in the Site Manager window. I can go
    weeks without using File-->Open in dreamweaver. It's just not the easy way.

    suggest you start "defining sites" for each of the sites you want to work
    on/ manage in dreamweaver.

    Otherwise you run the risk of Dw putting in hard coded Hard Drive paths when
    you make links.

    Also- Dreamweaver will remember the location of the current "local site
    folder" and the file open or file browse dialog boxes will start out in the
    correct base locations.

    Not to mention that if you specify a default images folder Fireworks can work
    seamlessly with DW. I think I'd have an easier time cutting off my mousing
    fingers than living without the site manager...
