JFileChooser change default directory in Windows

Tags: , ,



I want to change the default directory of my JFileChooser to “My Music” on Windows. This directory is C:UsersFreMusic on my account because my username is Fre

The default is set on C:UsersFreDocuments (depends on OS i think). How can I change this?

Answer

You can use the API method setCurrentDirectory when initializing your JFileChooser objects:

public void setCurrentDirectory(File dir)

Sample usage might be like:

yourFileChooser.setCurrentDirectory(new File  
(System.getProperty("user.home") + System.getProperty("file.separator")+ "Music"));
