Windows 7: Office 2013 Default Save Location

Office 2013 Default Save Location

Quite a basic question that I can't find the answer to ...

How do I change the default save location for Office 2013 apps for all users in a domain?
To do it locally I see you can by Options > Save > Default Local File Location ... but what about all users? Is there not a group policy? A reg entry?

Ideally I want all users to save to c:\users\%username%\onedrive for business

Please help - this is such a simple thing but so problematic!

Hi, Welcome to Seven forums.

Try this link. Set the Default Save Location to Computer in Office 2013 | trekker.net

There is a method of policy you can apply.

Keep us posted.

Thanks - I had already seen that article. That just refers to use the local PC as the saving location, not the path.

You would need to do it individually app by app.
Parameters are different between office 2013 apps (they are in hex format too).

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\15.0\Word\Options
"DOC-PATH"

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\15.0\Excel\Options
"DefaultPath"

etc.
