How to Set the Default Save Location for Microsoft Office Word
Let's get started! 1)
The procedure is the same to set the save default in the other Office programs.
It also works the same in Office 2007 and Office 2010
Open a Word doc, click the Windows button / "File" menu select "Save", at the top left select "Organize" then "Properties".
In the "Documents Properties" dialog box select "Include a Folder" Choose the new file location, for this tutorial mine is on the desktop.
In the window that opens select the file you want to use, mine is named "Change Default Save" for this.
Select "Change Default Save" and click "Set Save Location" then click "Apply" then "OK" to finish.
Now when you "Save" a Word doc it'll default to the new location.
