    default folder when saving a file

    Is there a way to change the folder that windows 2003 defaults to when saving
    a file? For example, when I select save, it usually defaults to "My
    Documents". Is there a way to change this setting for all of the users who
    log into the computer?

    Yes, of course, but if you are saving only from a single program, you
    might approach it differently; there are several ways.

    The easiest is to simply change the User Shell Folders value for
    documents in the registry, or simply right-click on My Documents and
    change the folder it uses to whatever you want to use. Generally you
    would do this under HKLM but if you already have accounts created, you
    might have to run a reg file on login to reset whatever users already
    have set.
