Windows 7: Saving MS Office Files

Saving MS Office Files

I have MS Office 2013 Professional. Lately when I save a file, it saves in the path I have set but also saves in my Download Folder. Nothing has been Downloaded, it just saves there. The path in Word and Excel are OK to where I want it saved and Google Chrome has the Download Folder as it should be. Would you have any ideas on what I can check to stop the files from saving in Download folder? Thanks,

Not sure as to where it is in Office 2013 apps but somewhere in the settings there should be a listed "default Save Location", which is usually the Documents folder for each user on a system.

In word 2016 the entry is under Options - Advanced and is towards the bottom of what is a very long list

Check if somehow you have "acquired" an additional entry in the locations entry

AHHH HAAA == There were two Download Folders instead of one that was causing the problem. Thanks
