File picker does not open the suggested location in windows 8 surface

    Question

  • The file picker in windows 8 surface does not open the suggested start location for the second time after a file is opened or a file opened in any sub directories using the same. (using javascript).

    How do I reset the start location every time I call the file picker (File Browser) using javascript ??

  • No. The suggested start location is a suggestion. After the first use it will remember the user's choice.

    Heres how I do it in C++, hopefully you can convert it to C#

    	FileOpenPicker^ openPicker = ref new FileOpenPicker();
    	openPicker->ViewMode = PickerViewMode::List;   //or Thumbnail;
    	openPicker->SuggestedStartLocation = PickerLocationId::PicturesLibrary;
        openPicker->FileTypeFilter->Append(".txt");
