Change default clone ‘to directory’ option in Atom’s command palate

  atom-editor, windows

In Atom 1.54.0, when I open the command palate (CRL + SHIFT + P) and select "GitHub: Clone", my default clone ‘to directory’ is C:Users<USERNAME>github.

Is there any way I can change the default directory to D:Users<USERNAME>pathtodefaultdirectory?

I have tried editing the default directory in C:Program FilesGitetcprofile according to the directions at but this didn’t change anything in Atom.
