One decision has proposed by om_s (at russian matlab-forum):
% put this file in matlabroot\toolbox\local\startup.m
cd_path=strcat(prefdir,'\cwdhistory.m');cd_dir=importdata(cd_path);
cd_path=cd_dir{1};cd(cd_path);clear cd_path cd_dir;
But I don't believe that there is no decision by MATLAB IDE way (any radiobutton or...). The goal is: every MATLAB session begins with current folder that have used in last session.

I think in order to be consistent with the -r and -sd (Windows only) startup flags and environment variables on UNIX, it might be better to change userpath in finish.m. This way, if a startup path is specified, it does not get overwritten. I would simply add:
userpath(pwd)
to finish.m. This way also handles the case where the last directory is deleted after quitting MATLAB.

There is no reason why it should be restricted to Windows.

as I understood help on userpath, for UNIX some additional commands are required

Maybe something like this in your finish.m:
last_working_dir = pwd;
save(fullfile('~','.matlab','lastest_dir.mat'),'last_working_dir')
Then in your startup - preferably not in the $matlabroot directory, then all users will get the same behaviour, and as GB Shaw said: "Dont do to others what you want them do to you - they might have different preferences":
if exist(fullfile('~','.matlab','lastest_dir.mat'),2)
load(fullfile('~','.matlab','lastest_dir.mat'))
% Wrap any amunt of finesse around the cd...
cd(last_working_dir)
end

yes, yes
I said this om_s when he proposed first to use both files...

@Igor, only one file is written, you have startup.m and finish.m anyways.
@Daniel: If done the way I suggest with finish.m you get to the last used working directory of the matlab session most recently closed, what happens with cwdhistory.m when you have more than one matlab session running I couldn't be bothered to find out since it was so easy to make something where I know for sure what's happening.

In Matlab R2015a for Mac OS X, this is a setting one can change in the preferences:
Preferences | Matlab | General
One can select one of three options:
Location based on Matlab Startup Rules
Last working folder from previous Matlab Session
(Specify the full path to a folder ...)
