it would be great to be able to permanently set the target location for importing images away from the default "Users\Myname\Pictures". Usually it keeps a new location between imports, but then will suddenly revert back to the default for no reason that I can see.

I suspect LR is switching to the default if the last location was offline when LR was started. Is that a possibility, like you're photos are on an external drive and you start LR then plug-in the external drive?

I see what you mean, but the target location is on the C drive.
