Changing Default File Location when Right-Clicking Photos

In Outlook Express, I often view photos from various newsgroups; when I
right-clickn the image, I am prompted to save the photo in My Documents\My
Photos.

I do NOT want the photo saved there, so that I must manually scroll through
the harddrive...in order to save it where I want it saved.

Ultimately, until I turn off the computer, my "saved" (and desired) location
works.

That is, until I reboot the computer. Then...the same procedure is required.

HOW CAN I CHANGE THE DEFAULT LOCATION SO THAT THE SCROLLING THROUGH THE
HARDDRIVE IS NEVER NECESSARY?

Thanks,

Larry

X-Post to OE6 NG

Assuming WinXP*, since you've posted to a WinXP newsgroup, see:

Set the "Save Attachment" Default in OE (Line 242)

*OP has repeatedly asked this same question in OE6 newsgroup (and did so
again tonight). Despite repeated requests to do so, he's never revealed

I hear you, Bear. Didn't catch if this came from CDO or not. If so, just
another day and reason to have depressed fish! :o)

Point taken and I concur (Bear). OP, "IF" you are reading this:

Using an NNTP Newsreader
http://www.microsoft.com/communities/guide/nntpnews.mspx

For a better way to access these newsgroups look here:
