    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!

    Thanks for the reply, however the first link just refers to the saving location, ie computer or Skydrive, etc and I've already applied this.

    The second link looks more promising but I cannot find the group policy this refers to - where is it?

    Download the Office 2013 Administrative Template files (ADMX/ADML) and Office Customization Tool file. Run it to extract the files to a folder. There is a spreadsheet office2013grouppolicyandoctsettings.xlsx which has all the settings. A quick check show you must set the default location for each of the applications. There does not appear to be a general setting.
