    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.
