    Default Save Location allows you to change which drive information is store on.


    But there is already a Location tab in folder properties to do that.



    You may need to streamline the default save location so you can do the same thing in Control Panel.

    :)

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

    Default Save Location and Location Tab

    FS/FT Thread title location

    One more suggestion for B/S/T forum is the inclusion of a location made mandatory.
    I know it's already possible, but there's a limited choice in locations, and not many people use it, assuming that because they're in the US, they don't need to.
    The problem from this comes when they state quite clearly (although sometimes not clearly at all), they only ship to the US.
    Making location mandatory in the thread title would save a bit of time and hassle, and would make searching the forum easier.

    A suggestion for this: use the poster's location, if they've added a correct location, as the default.

    It's not like it's an issue of privacy, the poster will tell where they're from within the post in a round-about way.

    Not a big suggestion, but I thought I'd throw it in there.
