    How to Make OneDrive Not the Default Save Location


    Running MS Office 2019 (installed version) in Windows 10, 1909. Every time I go to save an Excel or Word document, the default location that pops up is OneDrive. You then have to navigate back to your Documents folder. Is there a way/setting to change that? I'd like the Documents folder to be the default. Looked around in the Office settings, found nothing. Same with OneDrive. Looking for some direction.

    :)

    Recent (Save Files) - Change Default Settings to OneDrive

    Recent (Save Files) - Change Default Settings

    I am trying to save my files to OneDrive as a default. It has always worked as my default. For some reason, the default save location is now Recent. Something caused it to change. All default locations settings in Word Options, my computer and OneDrive settings are set to save to OneDrive. It appears my computer does not recognize these default settings.

    Do you have any suggestions how I can have my default locations for files change back to OneDrive?

    I use Windows 10. My computer is Dell XPS 8910.

    See Screenshots. Screenshot with Recent highlighted shows my current default location as Recent. OneDrive should be highlighted.

    Also, I reinstalled Microsoft Office.
