Thank you for getting in touch.
Changing the default export location of collection data is not possible at this time, however there is a persistant local storage file. It is called 'file__0.localstorage' on MacOS, but I do not recall what this would be on Windows. You should be able to symlink this to another location, or link it to a git repository. If the intention is to share this between other teams in this way, beware that this would completely override the data. This is not an ideal situation I am aware but it is something we are looking into.
The bar was an aesthetic choice for Windows as it looked strange compared to the MacOS version, but I am thinking about the consistency between them.
