    I'm running Windows 98SE.
    I use Notepad quite often.
    "Save As" always defaults to "My Documents" on drive C.
    I would like to change this to another folder on drive D.
    Where does Notepad get its stupid default from?

    Hiya

    Usually, it opens to where you last saved a file. If you go to Save As, and pick the new folder, and save it there. Then, close and re-open Notepad, and choose Save As, and it should go to the new folder.
