    Default 'Save' location

    I have MS Works 2001 and all seems to work Ok. but I would like to know if there is a way to change the default save location of my spreadsheet files. They insist on trying to save to Documents & Settings | %user% | my documents folder. I would like them to be saved to another sub folder right within the Works folder. I can get it to save there if I use "save to" and manually point then to the desired folder, but whenever I try to save a new sheet, it defaults to Docs & Settings again. Annoying !

    Long ago, there was a time when men cursed and beat on the ground with sticks. It was called witchcraft.
    Today it is called golf!

    Re: Default 'Save' location

    I've never used Works, so cannot help from personal experience. The nearest thing I can find relates to earlier versions, but may still apply:

    196216 - Works: How to Change the Default Folder in Which Files Are Saved
    and
    83662 - Works: Backup Files Placed in Default Folder (Directory)

    Re: Default 'Save' location

    Hi Leif,
    I tried those suggested KB's but both are for earlier versions of Works. They don't seem to apply to the version I have which is V6.0.
    The first article got me to a SIMILAR place and I modified the Start In location, but when I tried to save again, I went right back to the old "Document and Settings" folder. There must be a way to get away from the default save folder. I'm not adverse to getting into the reg if necessary. Whatever it takes. Thanks,
