    Default "Open" and "Save" Folders

    Hi there -

    When I open or save a file, Word (2007, on Windows 7 Pro) defaults to the "Documents" folder.

    This is annoying, since I don't use this folder. Can I change what folder Word opens by default?

    Thanks so much!

    Jon,

    On the File tab, select Options..., Save (or similar since I'm looking at 2010). HTH
