I have an annoying issue that is specific to AE 22.2.1. (Im on Win 10) When go to open a project (File > Open Project), AE always defaults to one particular folder. No matter where I navigate to open the project I need, the next time I open AE and a project, AE starts in that one particular folder. While it is not mission critical to fix, it is very annoying. Does anyone have any thoughts on what I can do?
I don't see anything in preferences that addresses this. My next step may be to uninstall/reinstall, but I'd like to find a solution before I do that.
Such behavior typically indicates a permissions issue with the folders and ultimately also the prefs file itself, so check that stuff using File --> Properties after a right-click on the relevant locations.
I don't have a solution to this, but I am experiencing the same issue on a windows 10 machine with the same version of AE. Older versions of AE (17 & 18) open the last saved location just fine. While it definitly isn't a crirtical issue, it is very annoying to have AE revert to the same folder every time you try to open a new project. Resetting the preferences file, and a fresh install of AE did not fix this.
