I'm trying to change the default folder when a program is launched. Example:
When I launch Microsoft Word, Excel, or even Acrobat, I would like a
specific folder to open instead of the "My Documents - Personal" folder. How
would I change it to default to say, the C drive, or any other folder I
choose. We have a Company Shared Folder that I would prefer it to default
to. *My apologies if I'm not using the proper terminology. Thank you for
your help! Shawn

If you are using an office product. open the program click on
tools->options->File Locations Tab. highlight the documents listing under
file type click on modify--> specify the location you want then click on
<OK>, click <ok> again and now you are ready to default to that location.
