Re: Why do doc files auto-save to Desktop?
You need to test this to see exactly what's happening.
Create a test file, with a unique name and save it as you normally save a
file. If it shows up in the documents folder you saved it to and on the
Desktop, delete the file on the desktop and then check to see if it still
appears in the documents folder where you saved the file.
Let us know.
