  2. Default location to save documenets

    Hi Frank,



    Thank you for posting your query on Microsoft Community.



    I understand that you are facing issues with Windows 10. I apologize for the inconvenience caused to you.

    The issue could occur if the default location is saved as OneDrive and we need to change it to local drive in default storage location.



    I suggest you to refer to the below steps and check if it helps.

    1. Click on Start Menu and then click on Settings.

    2. Click on Systems.

    3. Then click on Storage.

    4. Under Save Locations, change the location as This PC
    under New Documents will save to option.



    Let us know if you need any further assistance on Windows related issues and we will be glad to help.

  3. Default Save Locations

    Hi,

    Thank you for posting on Microsoft Community. I understand the inconvenience you are facing. I will certainly help you with this.

    By default we cannot change the installation location for Apps, however it can be changed through registry changes.

    I would suggest you to make the changes if you are comfortable working with registry because if we make any small mistakes, we can make the computer unbootable.

    You need to be logged in as the administrator to perform this actions:

    • Press Windows keys +R, type regedit and hit Enter.
    • Go to this location: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Appx
    On the right-side, double-click on PackageRoot and change the default value data to the location of your other drive/external drive. For instance, if drive letter is “G”, then enter G:\ in the value data box, and then click Ok button
    to set your drive as default location for apps.

    We suggest you create a new folder under the root of your drive and enter the path of that folder so that you can use the drive to store other files as well. That is, create a folder named
    WinApps on the drive, enter G:\WinApps (replace “G” with drive’s letter) as the location in value data box.

    From now on, whenever you install a new app from the Store, Windows 10 will install them on the other drive.

    NOTE: Important this section, method, or task contains steps that tell you how to modify the registry. However, serious problems might occur if you modify the registry incorrectly. Therefore, make sure that
    you follow these steps carefully. For added protection, back up the registry before you modify it. Then, you can restore the registry if a problem occurs. For more information about how to back up and restore the registry, click the following article number
    to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:

    322756 (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/322756/ ) How to back up and restore the registry in Windows



    Hope this information helps. Post back with updated issue details for further help.

    Thank you.

    Default location to save documenets

    Hi Frank,

    Sorry for the delayed response.

    From your recent description, it seems like the issue is confined to Word documents. If true, then follow the steps below and check if it helps.

    • Launch Word application.
    • Go to File Menu and select Options.
    • In the pop-up dialog box, towards the left pane, select Save.
    • Under Default location file, browse the location you want to save.
    • Check if the issue persists.

    Hope this helps.
