Changing the Default save Location in Microsoft Office Products

Most computer users are used to having their documents automatically saved to the My Documents folder on their personal computers. At Mosaic the default folder for the Microsoft Office products is not the My Documents folder but instead the apps folder on the H:\ drive. Since this is unfamiliar to most users you may receive requests to change the default save location so that users will not have to navigate to the location every time they save a file. To change the default save location, use the following steps:

  1. Open the Microsoft Office product the user would like to use on their account.
  2. Click on the “File” button in the upper left hand corner and select options                                                                                    

Click the “Save” tab on the left hand side of the window that pops up and then find the Default file location area indicated by the arrows below.

  1. Click “Browse” and select the location the user would like to use for their default location for saving.
