Changing the Default Documents Folder
By default, Word first offers to save documents in your My Documents folder. While this makes sense, let's face it: EVERY application wants a piece of your My Documents folder, and unless you make some changes, the folder will soon be overflowing with stray files. Fortunately, you can tell Word to save your documents in another folder by default. Choose Tools, Options and click the File Locations tab. Select Documents, and then click the Modify button. From here, you can browse and find an appropriate folder for your Word documents. When you find the folder you want, click OK.
