The basic command for this is setwd() (for "set working directory")
You can save your workspace after you use the setwd command, and this
will create a .RData file in that directory. In windows you can click on
the .RData directory to open R using that particular working directory.
You can always check on the current working directory using getwd().
Another useful command in this context is save.image (see ?save.image
