,----[ (info "(emacs)General Variables") ]
| `HOME'
|      The location of your files in the directory tree; used for
|      expansion of file names starting with a tilde (`~').  On MS-DOS,
|      it defaults to the directory from which Emacs was started, with
|      `/bin' removed from the end if it was present.  On Windows, the
|      default value of `HOME' is the `Application Data' subdirectory of
|      the user profile directory (normally, this is `C:/Documents and
|      Settings/USERNAME/Application Data', where USERNAME is your user
|      name), though for backwards compatibility `C:/' will be used
|      instead if a `.emacs' file is found there.

That means you can find the standard location with `C-x C-f ~/.emacs
RET'.  If it's not there, create it.
