    Can word processor documents be sent to desktop vs Documents folder


    Using Win 10 on Dell desktop PC
    Is there a way for documents in Microsoft WordPad and other word processors to be saved to my desktop directly rather than the default which is to Documents?

    :)

    Folder Freeze when trying to click on a Word Document. HELP

    Hi there,

    I came across a very weird bug/issue.

    Use Case

    Step 1: Create a word document on Desktop and name it TestFreeze

    Step 2: Test that you can open the word document and write something like 'Testing freeze folder' ->save it

    Step 3: Create a folder on Desktop and name it FreezeMe

    Step 4: Copy 'TestFreeze' document in the 'FreezeMe' folder

    Step 5: Open the 'FreezeMe' folder and select/click 'TestFreeze' document

    Result: Folder Not Responding

    Additional Information

    I have run some tests and it does not matter:

    • if it is a new or old Microsoft word file
    • if the document has content in it or not
    • if it has a long/short name or special characters
    • it does not matter the folder or the name of the folder in which you put the file in
    I also tried with an excel file and seems that I do not experience the same issue.

    Microsoft version: 16.0.9330.2073

    Windows version: 10.0.17134 Build 17134 with all updates up to date

    If there is anything else I can provide to help sort this out, please do let me know.

    Opened to any suggestions on how to fix this, as it is very frustrating.

    Thanks
