Installing from the development branch will yield an Ipython in the
start menu that will launch in your home directory. This was
accomplished by identifying ""%HOMEDRIVE%%HOMEPATH%"" as the working
directory. You can do the same by right clicking on the Ipython entry,
selecting properties, and specifying ""%HOMEDRIVE%%HOMEPATH%"" or any
other directory.
