I have windows 7 and I would like to use wordpad for only 1 thing. When I am done with the document I want to be able to just hit the save button and have it go directly to a folder I made. Is that possible?
Thanks,
John

For the first time save, you have to save it in the exact location manually. Then whenever you are editing the document, you can press CTRL+S or the SAVE button, without doing "SAVE AS". But for the first time, you need to save it in the folder by your self.

I'm sorry I worded what I wanted to do wrong, when I open a wordpad document or a new wordpad doc. I would like it saved in a folder is there some way to set the path for wordpad docs to be saved in 1 specific folder without clicking a few buttons? I would like to just hit the save button.
Thanks,
John

Whether you hit the SAVE button or not, for the first time save , SAVE AS dialog box will open, and that is for giving a name to the file and saving it. This means for the first time save, you have to save it in the exact location manually or you have to save it in the default location, My Documents. Anyway, you can move My Documents in to a different partition or to a different location.
