Modify the "Start in" field of the IDLE shortcut. You can use
environment variables, e.g. "%UserProfile%\Documents".

Unfortunately, since I do not have any administrative privileges, I do not think I have the ability to modify any of these shortcuts.  Nor do I know off hand how to set environment variables in a manner that would work consistently throughout the term, so that they persist for all logins.

Since this is Windows-y system, I can't just tell my students to edit a .cshrc.   Any other ideas?
