    FileReference and opening to a certain directory

    Can I .browse() to a certain directory? I am trying to help my users find a file and I know the place it "usually" is is there a way to open to that spot at start?

    Flash is entirely client side, and is restricted from doing things like opening directories or reading files on the client side.

    The dialogue is actually outside of Flash, and the browser holds the setting on which folder is set when browsing. I don't know of any way to manipulate that, nor do I think you should be able to.

    My suggestion is to just make it clear where the normal file is before they browse.
