In ArcMap the folder location used to unpack packages dragged into a map can be set using the Customize | ArcMap Options > Sharing tab:

I just looked for the equivalent option in ArcGIS Pro on the Project Page | Options but it has no Sharing tab:

Is the only way to control this by using the output folder of the Extract Package tool instead?

This has not been implemented yet. I asked the responsible team about this not long ago. It is on their to-do list.

(I don't have access to their queue, thus I can't get a tracking number, nor can I speak to when it might be implemented.)

For now, the only way to control package output is by using the Extract Package tool as you mention.

Settings in ArcGIS Pro seem to be more project based than application based, so I doubt there would be a setting like the ArcMap one.

As most tasks in ArcGIS Pro are run from geoprocessing tools, I imagine the geodatabase or locations specified in Environments would be used for any/all geoprocessing tasks, including the Extract Package tool.

  • An odd thing is that the Sharing As A Layer Package dialog appears in a Package Layers pane that is separate from the Geoprocessing pane that is used to house the Extract Package tool dialog. Even though there are no Sharing options there, that is a place that I had not thought to look for them. – PolyGeo Apr 7 '16 at 5:45
