Change the default location for opening and saving spreadsheets
If you are always opening spreadsheets from and/or saving documents to a specific location that is not My Documents, save time by setting this folder as the default for opening files from and saving files to.
1. Go to Tools - Options.
2. Select the General tab.
3. Enter the pathname of the folder you wish to make the default in the Default File Location box (hint: it will be easier to use Windows Explorer to navigate to this folder, then copy and paste the pathname from the address bar at the top of the Windows Explorer screen).
4. Click OK.
You have now changed the default folder for opening and saving spreadsheets.
