Change the Default Save Folder for Windows 7 Something else

Hi Experts

I have been through these two links below

MS Office Word : Set Default Save Location

Library - Set Save Folder


If I want to change a default saved location folder for any of those file's types : Excel, adobe , jpg, access, email attachment , ,,,,,etc

Do I need to repeat the procedure explained in the above two links for each individual file type ?

Thanks

Hello Zillah,

You cannot change the default save location for file types.

The methods you linked to use a library to set a program to save to, then set the library's default save location usually works best though.

Hope this helps some,
Shawn

No problem, but first please give more details on exactly what you are wanting to setup or do this with.

For now, basically you would just save whatever you wanted to save into a library. You can set any of the included folders added to the library to be the default save location that everything saved into the library is actually saved to.

Thanks Shawn
Normally I have many files types when I work
PDF, jpg, word , email attachments, txt,,,,etc

Every time when I want to save those files , my PC defaults location to My Document location
I have to chane that manually to desktop

How can avoid the manual changing ? I mean I want my PC to default the location for all those files types to desktop not my Document

It depends on what you are saving them from, but normally I find it easiest to select Desktop from under Favorites in the navigation pane to make changing save locations easier.

If this is from within Internet Explorer, then this can help.
