VMWare Player - How to change the default VM Location

By default, VMWare Player saves any VM you create to your documents folder and there doesn't appear to be a way to change that. However, there is.

Open up the following file in your favorite text editor:

Save, restart VMWare Player, and your new location should work when creating a new VM.
