  1. New folders are created in the OneDrive directory, how to change this?


    Hi everyone,
    I've had Windows 10 final release installed on my pc for a couple of days, and it has been proving a quite good experience. I just came across something though. I was editing a cpp file in Notepad++ and wanted to save it to a newly created folder in Documents. The thing is that, when I click on Save as and then on the New Folder icon, the new folder is placed in OneDrive\Documents. In the folder browser of the "Save as" box, when I select Libraries from the left menu, the local Documents folder and the OneDrive one are displayed, but I don't seem to be able to change the default Documents folder as in Windows 8.1. Is there a way to remove OneDrive from the User folders?

    I hope I was clear, English isn't my native language.

    EDIT: When I click on "This PC" then "Documents", I can only see the local Documents folder. It happens only when I click on Libraries > Documents

    :)

    How to actually change the default save location

    I understand you can change it in word and tried to point out that I have done that exact thing two times after that clean install. I tried to explaining by the long description that this is not relevant to one program but to the operating system and why
    I thought the question is a Windows setting question.

    For example OneDrive has a user environment variable and when I changed the OneDrive autosave to "OneDrive" all my programs that use the documents folder to save start saving to the OneDrive documents folder instead of PC documents folder. However, when
    I change the OneDrive autosave to "This PC Only” instead of going to the documents folder I mentioned I moved it creates a new directory on my OS drive (C:/user/documents).

    The question is it possible to actually change the default save locations on my PC? Like the user environment variable for OneDrive.
