Change EPiServer file manager start folder

On the subject of “for future reference” and “note to self”, when needed to setup the start-up folder within EPiServer folder manager.

var cookie = new HttpCookie("EPiDPCKEY");

cookie.Values.Add("path", "/Globals/Clients/1/");


When done so, EPiServer folder manager will load the path saved in the cookie on initial load. This will be useful, if you have different business areas accessible to different users and you would like to facilitate EPiServer editors with loading the appropriate “Folder” in EPiServer Folder manager.

Nice. I gave up on this a couple of months ago.
