Default How do I change File Open default directory from My Documents

Every time I open Excel 2002 and choose File Open it defaults to My
Documents.
While working in Excel, it will always remember the last directory I was in.
When I close, and then relaunch Excel, File Open defaults back to My
Documents.
Is there some way to change which directory is default when using File
Open.
I would like to do this without registry edits or changing the target path
of My Documents shortcut if possible.
Thanks in advance for any help!

ToolsOptionsGeneral

Default File Location is where you enter the path to your desired folder.
