Office 2013 – set default, save location

Take a look at computers in almost every business and it’s guaranteed that a large percentage of them will be running Microsoft Office. There are many different versions of Office, and Microsoft will officially release a new version of Office – 2013 – in Q1 2013, and businesses will be looking to upgrade. Those who do upgrade will undoubtedly have questions – one of the more common being how to change the default location where your documents are saved.

Here’s how you can change the default save location, (where documents are saved), in Office 2013. By default, Office 2013 will save your documents to SkyDrive. Some users will want to change this so that documents are saved to their PC.

  1. Open Microsoft Word and select a blank document.
  2. Click File followed by Options.
  3. Select Save.
  4. Click the box that says Save to Computer by default.
  5. Click Browse beside the Default local file location and select the file where you would like to save your documents. If you don’t change the location, your files will be saved into your Documents folder.
  6. Select Ok.

After you set the save location, you will notice that other Office programs will also be set to save in that location as well. If you’re interested in upgrading to Office 2013 when it arrives please contact us.
