Hello all,
    Does anyone know a way around the Windows 7 bug with Matlab R2010a for path and default folder? The paths do not save after closing Matlab and the default folder cannot be chosen (can it?). I am running the student version but I heard of this happening in the regular version as well.
                 Thank you

I'm running 2010a on Win7 Pro 64-bit, and I haven't experienced any problems with this.

If you have problems with changing the starting folder (userpath), take a look at these links:
http://www.mathworks.com/access/helpdesk/help/techdoc/matlab_env/f8-10506.html#f8-12991 (change of start-up folder)
http://www.mathworks.com/access/helpdesk/help/techdoc/ref/userpath.html

You could also take a look at this link;

http://www.mathworks.com/access/helpdesk/help/techdoc/matlab_env/br7ppws-1.html#br8cjwl-1

which I think will solve your problem (I have a feeling you're trying to add specific directories to the search path by right-clicking and selecting "add to path" - this will only add them to the search path for the current session).
