Windows 7: Save function of the default libraries not work

Save function of the default libraries not work


I installed Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit and I applied, in Safe Mode, the document to move the locations of user data of all users and public directories in another partition of the same disk.

I noticed, however, that the save function of the default libraries to these "new" locations not working. Why?

Hello Balubeto,

Does the new location show up in the library? If not be sure to include that new folder location in the library.

You might also check to make sure that the new location is selected as the default Save folder for the library as well.

Hope this helps,

How did you move the folders? It appears the Users folder and individual user folders need to stay where they are.

Setting default save location to last save folder
Is there any way to set the default save location folder for downloads in IE8 to the last folder that the same file type was saved in? It makes no sense to default to a single folder and have to browse through to the desired folder for every single download, so I assume there has to be an option...
