Default Location for opening files
Hi, is there a way to have Vista remember the previous folder that you
opened? It is defaulting to My Documents instead of the previous folder that
I was using.
Thanks!

Re: Default Location for opening files
Hi, Jackie.

First, Vista uses a different structure from WinXP. It doesn't use "My
Documents" at all, except as necessary for compatibility with older
programs, to point them to the new folder in the Vista structure. Probably
something like C:\Users\<Jackie - or whatever user name you use>\Documents..

Second, in what program and in what way are you opening the folders? In
Windows Explorer? Or in Word? Or Excel? Or some other application?

For example, I always download files into my E:\Download folder and IE7
always remembers that name - until I choose a different folder, and then it
remembers the new folder name until I change it back. Which application is
giving you problems?
