Due to the COVID19, I am working from home via VPN. The HOME directory is set to a directory on the company network. Other applications use this directory as well.
I would like to have Emacs use a local HOME directory without changing the HOME environment variable (used by other applications). I'm hoping this will speed up Emacs.
The manual and other issues say to change the value of the HOME environment variable in order load the
.emacs and other initialization files. I can't do this because other applications refer to the HOME directory.
I have Windows 7 set up to run "runemacs.exe" when a ".cpp" file is double clicked in File Explorer.
So, how do I change the Emacs home directory, so that File Explorer can pass the HOME directory to Emacs (?via command line?)?
