Every time I open MATLAB, it creates a MATLAB folder automatically for me under ~/Documents/. Is there any way that to stop it doing this? I use Mac OS X 10.10 and I set default startup path to be a custom path. Thank you!

Then restart MATLAB.

Many thanks. This has helped me as well. Just for reference this is the command I have used to set it up:
userpath("/Users/Stefan/Library/Mobile Documents/com~apple~CloudDocs/MATLAB")
Afterwards the MATLAB folder in Documents is no ~/Documents/ is no longer created.
