How to change the file path
Just click on the desktop icon on the left sidebar.
Solidworks tends to navigate to the last folder location that a file was opened from and I think saved to. So you most likely opened something from your templates folder most recently and not from your desktop. Sometimes this is a good thing, other times it is not a good thing. Not sure if you can set a default folder that it would always navigate to under all conditions.
