Hi

Whenever i right-click and - hit save target as - the save in dialog box appears. :whistling:

My problem is that i want to change the default folder that first appears on screen which is always
my documents.

I want everything to save in a different folder without me having to select the folder manually.

Can i do this?

When you get the "Save In" dialog box, use the drop down menu to select a different location and save it. It should then automatically open to the new location in subsequent saves.

Thanks for the reply wannabe1

Yeah what you suggested does work. Although it defaults back to 'save in' - 'my documents'
after each startup.

I'm thinking it is probably a default setting in the registry or something. It's not really a problem anyway, i just thought i would be able to change it on XP.


Thanks
Muzikizum :whistling:
