    Saving Documents to Desktop


    Whenever I try to save a document to my desktop using file explorer, it takes too long. It states “working on it” and after about a minute or so the desktop in file manager opens up and I can then continue. This does not happen when I try to save files anywhere else.

    :)

    Can word processor documents be sent to desktop vs Documents folder

    That's a different question.
    You want to know how to change the default.
    Only by 'relocating' your user Documents folder to your Desktop. Move Location of Documents Folder - TenForumsTutorials but it seems a very big step to take just to satisfy WordPad.
    I would not be at all surprised to find that somebody has discovered a Registry hack to do what you want more directly & without relocating the Documents folder.
