    Saving a file to a folder listed in "Quick Access"


    When I download a pdf file (A billing statement in this case), I would like to select "Save As" and be able to select the folder directly from one of the folders shown in Quick Access that is shown in File Explorer without having to rummage through all the folders on my three drives. Right now, "Save As" causes the folder selection to start with My PC. Is there an easy way for the list of folders in Quick Access to be displayed when I select "Save As" to save the file? Starting in My PC makes me go through the mess of finding the folder in which I want to save the file.

    Thanks for any help.

  2. How to find a list of Recent Documents in Windows 10

    I'm sorry to say that File Explorer, Quick Access sucks. It just saved a pdf copy of this page to my My Documents, Computer folder. In Win7, my computer folder would show up in "Recent Files". Guess what isn't in "Quick Access"? I found this very handy
    when saving multiple documents to the same folder even in a different browsing session.

    Changing default view in folder list in File Explorer

    When I am "saving as" to browse for a folder Windows opens File Explorer, but instead of opening at the top where Quick Access appears, it moves down to Local Disk (CSaving a file to a folder listed in "Quick Access" :). As a result I have to scroll up to get to the Quick Access area where most of my files
    can be quickly located. Is there a way to set the view so that it opens at the top of File Explorer where the Quick Access folders are?

    Saving a file to a folder listed in "Quick Access"

    Hi keithet,

    You are able to change the default output locations for saving files, but I'm not sure if you can do what you're trying to do.
    How to change your default save locations on Windows 10

    I, too, hate navigating through the Explorer Tree, just to find a single folder. What I have found to be much easier is to set up shortcuts, which it sounds like that's what you've done along your Taskbar. From that point I just download everything to the Desktop and use the Drag & Drop method. Using third party programs, such as Folders Popup, makes it even easier.

    I do hope there is a way to do what you're asking though, as that would be a nice alternative.


    Good luck,
