The default working directory is set in the "Start In" field for the Creo icon that you use to launch Creo. Right click on the icon you use to start Creo, select "Properties" and set the path there.

When you drag a file to Creo or double click it in Windows, I believe that Windows calls parametric.exe directly, it doesn't use a shortcut. Therefore there's no way to pre-set the working directory that I know of.

I'd avoid this method and always start Creo with a shortcut.

To understand Your Question:

You pick a part using  drag and drop in creo - the Part opens in session- when you save it- it picks the same folder where you have drag aand drop it

(say if you had drag and drop from destop and it saves back on destop)

while you have a working directory as " my documents" and you want to save it "my documents" instead of "destop"

Your solution could be taking a backup

open Part- save as backup- Select " working directory" - click "Ok"

I hope this answer your QUestion
