I would like to set the folder /Users/ALJI/MATLAB as a default current folder for Matlab. I mean on every start up Matlab should point to this folder. is it possible ? is there a way on Mac OS X ?
I am using Matlab r2009b on Mac OS X Snow Leopard.
thank you in advance

On MAC OS try changing the file of userpath(), which I think defaults to your Documents directory, you can confirm this by entering
at the command line.
should persist across MATLAB sessions.
Or read this:

To fix this problem, right click your Matlab icon, select Properties->shortcut, in "start in", delete the default folder and put the directory that you want its work.

Starting in R2014b there is a MATLAB preference for doing this. Open the Preferences dialog from the Home tab in MATLAB and select MATLAB/General preferences tree node on the left side of the dialog. The General preference panel has an option to select the "Initial working folder".

first, open the file location of your matlab.exe
after that, create shortcut to whatever location (example : desktop)
then right click the shortcut icon and double click properties
in Shortcut bar, you can find start in text input, just paste your desire location
finally, you can pin the shortcut to taskbar for easy access
cheers ^^

I'm using 2019a and Amar Neçaibia provided THE solution:

I think that there might be a bug because even on my PC modifying the "Initial working folder" preference in the General category of the preferences for MATLAB and applying that change didn't cause MATLAB to start in that directory. I did what Amar suggested and it work instead. I am using MATLAB R2018a on Windows 10

If you want a program to start in the directory /home/abc/def, just write in the first line of the source code:
cd /home/abc/def
The syntax works under Windows, Mac and Ubuntu but of course the directories are usually different, so you cannot have one code that just works on all platforms.
For example you can write in Windows a start path in the source code (you can write with forward or backwards slash, it works):
cd c:/mycode/maindir
