If you load a game, which is a very common scenario, the "save" folder (OpenTTD save folder) is the current folder.

I usually save my games in my Dropbox folder, because I play on different computers, and I get redundancy as a bonus.
Each time I want to play, I open OpenTTD and choose "Load Game", and I have to locate my Dropbox folder, and then locate the game within it. Every time.

It would be nice that when I choose "Load Game", the current directory will be the one that was current before I closed the game.
This task depends upon

Perhaps replace the default savegame folder by a link to your dropbox folder?

Replacing the default savegame folder by a link didn't worked. It is windows. The game recreated the "save" folder in the same location.
