See the ?Rconsole man page. The search is somewhat complicated; it's up to you to decide whether you want the setting to apply just to your user (it should be in the R_USER directory), or be the default for all users (it should be in the R_HOME/etc directory). For me, the default location for saving is the R_USER directory; I suspect it's the same default for you, but I haven't actually checked the code.
