change the drop down menu default

When I sometimes have to browse for a file the drop down menu appears and the default is set to Documents. Is there any way I can change the default to desktop?

Hello Andrew,

Sorry, but this is a universal setting that always opens to the same location that it was last closed from. I'm not sure that it can be set to a default location.

Thanks Brink, guess I'll have to curb my impatience and live with it.
