I assume you are using PC SAS.
Right mouse click on the SAS icon on your desktop and go into
properties, then into shortcut and change the directory path in startin box.

Subject: SAS 8 default directory
I'm wondering how I can set the default directory that SAS points
to when I click on File > Open. Right now, it keeps defaulting to
something nested six or seven deep in a Windows directory, and I have a
'documents' directory that I want it to point to.
I found something under Tools > Options > System, and then under
Environmental Control > Files > Set. I tried to right click on Set and
modify it, but while it will let me delete things, it won't let me add
anything. It also seems to be very complicated, and I'm concerned about
breaking something. I can't seem to find a simple switch to alter what
the default directory is, but have so far been rather frustrated in the
