  1. Saving file location defaults


    So specifically with PDF files. When I do a "save as" or sign with a digital signature, it brings up the explorer window. The explorer window opens to the file location of the last file I saved a PDF in. I would like explorer to default the the folder the file I am working with is currently in.

    :)

    • Go to File Menu and select Options.
    • In the pop-up dialog box, towards the left pane, select Save.

    Saving file location defaults

    default location to save files is in a hidden folder

    You could try setting the default save location to this PC and then when you initially save a file to a location on the PC, Office should then default to that location:

    • Open MS Word
    • Click on the File menu item
    • Click on Options
    • Dialog box “Word Options” opens. Click on Save settings located on the left menu
    • On the right-hand side you will see a checkbox labeled “Save to computer by default”, check it and then click OK.
