Locating files with mutipule logins

I store the files I create for all the programs I use under a sub directory
that might be named My Documents under the C directory. The directory has
sub directories based on the project I am working on or the type of files.
For example I have Acad files I store in one place but all the Excel, Word
and Power Point documents for a project would go under that sub directory
name. I do not like to store things under the Documents and Settings sub
directory.

This makes it easy to back up all my files when I am only concerned with
backup the data.

With a multiple logins, how do I insure that when I open a excel sheet that
the document will be saved where it came from. It appears to me that because
I have the Excel shortcut under all users desktop that files will be store in
the all users area under Documents and Settings.

Where I can read more about this.

Thank you

No. If you open a file from the HDD and save it without using "Save
As" the file is written to the same location as from where you loaded
it.

Okay, I believe that it stores back in the place that it came from. But now
the next question, How do I stop having shortcuts of the file stored in
recent and at my computer. I don't want that. When are the extra shortcuts
removed.... Are they sitting there for as long as the file exist?

Thank you for your help.

Is there a tech area that I can start reading articles that will allow me to
gain more insight into these kinds of questions?
