ok.. in my older win95 computer, i open notepad up.

it defaults to opening a file in the my documents folder. so i go to another folder (lets say folder typesk in C:\) and open it up.

if i open another folder, itll still tries to open up a file in the typesk folder in C:\ ,....

but on this computer, win98SE, it doesnt. ill open up notepad. it defaults to opening a file in the my documents folder. if i go to and open up a file in the typesk folder, and then try open up another file, it goes back to trying to open up a file in the my documents folder.

how do i get it to stop doing that, to try and get it to open up a file from the same folder that the previous files was opened from (if that makes sense? it should .. :/ ) ?

That's the default setting for Notepad in Win98SE. Mine does it to.

Hmmm, just taking another look, and My Open window opens up depending on where the file location is, just as you explained.


Ah, I see where the confusion is. open a txt document before opening Notepad, and it will work. if you open Notepad from the Start, Programs, Accessories location, then it will always default to My Documents.

yep!!

I keep at least one text file on my desktop for that purpose. I haven't entered Notepad through Accessories in ages. Today was the first time, when I was testing what you were saying!!:D
