You can save your projects anywhere you like but make a folder first on the desired drive. Auto Save is set in  File > Project Settings > Scratch Disks As for your export that is set by you in the export settings each time you export.

That is true but it does not solve the problem if you have all your location settings to "same as project".
Every time you open a new project the location field remains where the Media Cache was last saved.
The only way to fix so a new project default location is created is as follows:

Preferences / Media Cache - Media Cache Files  Location - Browse

A new project will have this in the location field.

Therefore my answer below is also correct.

I just started premiere 2020 and created a new project and by default it's save location was the last place I'd saved a project.  So that should work, right, if you always want to save your projects in the same placed?  Of course, setting up all the scratch disks which by default are the same location as your project is another kettle of fish...

The question being asked also invloves a way to set of change the default location for a new project when you have all your locations set to "same as Project" and the default location keeps coming up as an old location that you do not want.
To save having to change that every time to a differnt location that you want frequently you can change it permanently as I stated before:
Preferences / Media Cache - Media Cache Files  Location - Browse
See images.

Always a good idea to have your project saved to a different physical drive than your autosaves.  I save my projects to a folder on my boot drive that is automatically mirrored on dropbox and my autosaves go on to my media drive.  And my media is also backed up to a different drive.  belts and suspenders....
