Default Default Fileopen folder

I cannot find a way to change my default folder when I want to open a file
back to it's previous state. I recently installed an accounting programme on
my PC and now when I go to FileOpen I endup in
C:\Programfiles\accountprogramme.

I am running Excel 2007 and already tried changing the default file location
without success.

Many thanks

Default Default Fileopen folder

EXCEL 2007

Try the following:-

Office Button (top left hand corner)

Excel Options (lower right hand corner)

Save (on the left hand side)then, on the right hand side, in the Save
workbooks section at the top, change the Default file location: field to the
option of your choice.

OK

TO TEST THAT THE ABOVE HAS WORKED

File / Open - it should open to the directory that you have set above.

If my comments have helpled please hit Yes.

Default Excel won't use default file location

Hi,
I have exactly the same problem, I installed an Accounts program (Sage Instant Account V16) and now every time I open or Save it goes to the Accounts installation folder.

I have changed correctly in Option/default File Save location. Restarted, rebooted.

Word & other programs are working correctly.

Even if I Save As c:\my docs\test.xls, close excel, start excel, open - It goes straight to "..\sage line 50"

If you options/change default location it then opens correctly but as soon as you exit it goes back to the \accounts even though it is still correct in the options setting.

Very odd, bloody Sage software..

Any ideas, driving me mad.
