    With Office 365, how do you get the program to go to the "Document" folder when you click "File, Open"?

    I do not want to have to do several clicks to get there?
    I just want to see the listing of the files in Document folder.

    Click HERE for a guide on how to change the default save location. I assume that is where it'll look for saved documents first.

    That is not the issue, I want the following to appear when I click "File, Open"

    I understand that. But I think the default save location is the same as where it'll initially look for documents.

    NOT Solved but it appears there is no way of getting what we want.
    Thanks for tries.

    I found another article. This states that it's the way to do it for Office 365. But, of course, it could be an older version.

    HERE is the article.

    Yes I think you're right. THere's no way to bypass that when Clicking [File] --->> [Open]

    It does work correctly when you click the open Icon in the Tool Bar.

    I downloaded a trial and will continue to see if there's a hack or something.

    That is strange, for me, with one click from Open I go to This PC and it goes to my documents folder

    Are you using Office 2016/2019 or Office365?

    That is correct, but I do NOT want to have to click any thing after I click "File, Open".
    I want to see the Document listing as soon as I click Open, like it has always been in any of the earlier real versions of Office.
    I am using Office 365.

    OK, so as confirmed, there is no classic view native to Office365. There is however a program that can change it but it's not free.

    I can understand the frustration of not having the same view as previous versions... took me a while to get used to this format.

    Having said that, is one extra click really that cumbersome? ;) :D
