I'm setting up some stuff for my parents in their cabin, and an idea hit me.


The problem:
I set up a new profile because I'm in a different location with different file sources (local USB hard drives), etc. After naming my profile this window pops up, but it doesn't say why. I know that it is asking me if I wish to change the default location for the profile's userdata folder, but other people won't know this and just think something went wrong or they might start clicking around and select a weird place to store the data unintentionally.



Possible solution:
Similar to how we have settings help text, I think a good short term improvement would be to have a variable text box for selection windows that are used in different places in the program.

Crude example:

(pretend I edited out "Browse for folder", since that is now redundant)

Thoughts? Good idea? Bad idea?
