You almost certainly use a shortcut to open the program, either in your
desktop or Start menu. Right click on it, choose Properties, Shortcut tab,
and see what it says for "Startup Directory" (or something like that).
That will be the original "current directory" when the program starts; but
it may be changed afterwards.
