    How do I change the default folder that Nautilus Opens

    I have my personal data mounted on a separate partition, bookmarked this as "Documents." The default nautilus behavior is to open the user's home directory. I would like it to open /media/sda1 instead. I realize I could create a launcher that does this, but am curious as to whether there is an underlying preference file in nautilus where I can do this tweak.

    Re: How do I change the default folder that Nautilus Opens

    In order to have Nautilus/Files open on a particular folder, just open the menu editor Alacarte and change the command associated with Files:

    Code:
     nautilus %U
    to the following command:

    Code:
     nautilus /path/to/a/directory
    (tested on Ubuntu GnomeShell Remix 12.04 AMD64 )
