    W-98SE When I use "Save As" for a Word Document it always defaults to Save In: My Documents. How can I change the default location? Thanks

    Open word, click on tools, click on options, click on the save tab and at the bottom you can change the default folder.

    Hi Rafty, the following is for Word 97 and should work the same in 2000. Go to Tools/Options and then select File Locations. From there you can select the default save point for your documents. Just double-click on the item you want to change the location for and direct it to where you want. This will become your new default.

    Try edals suggestion, it is the same for word 2000. The way I told you will only be for the one doc. His way is for the default.

    Sorry my information was wrong.
