Hi,
Can someone tell me where to go to change the default setting for the folder that opens when I want to insert an attachment. Seems that the default is "My Documents." I have set up a different folder called "My Files" that all of my stuff is in. I'm sure there is a way to change this, but I can't locate it. I am running Win ME. Thanks loads! (I KNOW this is the place to get ALL my answers!)

OL2000: How to Set the Default Attachment Folder

The above is meant for Outlook 2000 on a Win2k system, but maybe it will provide insight on working with ME.

What email program do you use?


BTW, there is a simple solution to it all. Right-click the My Documents icon on your desktop and select Properties. In the Target folder, click on Browse and navigate to the folder you want, My Files. Select it and click OK, then click Ok to close the Properties Window. Now everytime something calls your My Documents folder as the default, it will open the folder you have just designated instead. It will be labelled in the popup window as My Documents, buit that is not bother.
