You didn't even tell what version of office your using.
Open Word, Navigate to the office button/File menu>click 'Word options'>Click Save.
Click 'browse' next to the default file location option and select the folder which you like to be default save and open folder.
Same for excel. Just click Excel options instead of Word options.
