When ever you try to open or save a file in Microsoft Office, it opens the Document folder by default. Now some of us may go with the default settings but there are many who use cloud drives, mapped network drives, synchronized folders to work on their documents.
So today, I will show you how you can change the default save as location of Microsoft Office so that you don’t have to browse for the directory each time you try to save or open a document.
What I will do is, I will show you how you can change the default save location in Microsoft Word 2007/10, and you can use the same in Excel and PowerPoint too.
Changing the Default Save Directory
Step 1: Open Microsoft Word 2007 and click on the Office Orb. If you are working on Office 2010 click on the File button.
Step 2: In the menu click on the Options button to open the Word Options window.
Step 3: In the Word Options window click on the Save button in the left sidebar to customize how documents are saved. Here, you can change every all the gamut of how Word saves documents. You can change the default file save location, default format in which the files are saved.
Step 4: Once you are done click on the OK button to save the changes. Now every time you save a new document or open an existing one your desired will open automatically.
You can use the same steps across Excel and PowerPoint to change the default save settings in them as well.
If you work on your documents on the clouds, or you use separate folders to save Word, Excel or PowerPoint documents you can change the default save location and save yourself some time every time you try to open or save a document.
