Tip of the day: Default project location in Visual Studio

When rebuilding a machine I always end up hunting this setting down just after installing Visual Studio because I keep forgetting where it is. I never put my projects in my documents directory. Ever.

In Visual Studio go to Tools –> Options... then navigate to “Projects and Solutions” and in the “General” section change the “Projects location” to the one you want.
