How can I change the default settings for 'Print to File' in the Print dialogue?

I would like to change the default save location from ~/ to ~/Desktop.

p.s. I do not want to have to use cups-pdf

Print to File. Dialogue box look for the 'Save in Folder' drop down and then choose the location you would like to save it, if its not listed click on the 'other'. Simple really.
