Sorry, but I don't understand your saying

If you are suggesting how to set HOME path for IPython (IPYTHONDIR) -
that's not what I'm after

I want to start IPython in arbitrary (current) folder, and not in fixed
place every time. For example, if I'm in "C:\Programs\Scripts" and evoke
IPython shell, I want it to be in that folder without entering
"cd C:\Programs\Scripts" (or any other folder in which currently I am)
every time
