There may be a better way, but I just specify the starting directory in the
Windows shortcut I use to start emacs. Right-click the shortcut that has
this as target: C:\your\path\to\runemacs.exe, and put the folder you want in
the "Start in:" field - e.g. C:\your\directory.

I also provide the same directory to runemacs.exe, so that I start Emacs in
Dired: C:\your\path\to\runemacs.exe "C:\your\directory".  HTH.
