In Word, Excel, and PowerPoint I have the default file open and save locations pointing to a folder on the network. Whenever I choose to save an attachment in Outlook it defaults the My Documents folder. When I choose to open the attachment from within Outlook, whatever application (Word, Excel) the file opens in, when I click on Save As it defaults to a temp directory. Is there a way to change those default file location settings? Is this a setting in Outlook that I am missing, or is it built within the program? Any clues would be helpful.

No, you cannot change it. You CAN, however, change the location of the save as when you click on the attachment icon, and hit File-Save attachment, but it requires a registry edit.

Thanks for the reply. I was looking more into it and that is about as much information as I found too. I changed all my Office file locations back to default and tried a registry edit. The registry fix worked for the other Office Apps, but still not stubborn Outlook.
Thanks Again
