Change the Directory that Opens for "Browse"


Here's my situation: During the user's execution of my program, they must go to a third party's website and submit a file created by my porgram. My program opens a browser and sends them to the site. They click on a Browse button to select the file, ect. ect. I want to change to directory that opens up when they click the browse button.

Does anyone know how to do this? I would like to also restore the default directory to what it was before they ran my program.

I would like a solution that will work for Win 98,Me,XP.


RE: Change the Directory that Opens for "Browse"

I believe each browser keeps track of it's own last Save As location here is where it is kept for Internet Explorer.

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Download Directory
