How do I change the default folder to save a pdf? Cheers, Steve

Every time I go to save a pdf it goes to some obscure folder buried in the C drive.

    Thanks Pablosca, but I know where they're going to. I want to know how to change the default folder to go to My Documents instead of the C drive folder.

    Cheers, Steve

    Thanks. I am a Luddite. How do I find registry editor? I have a pdf opened and I found preferences under Edit but there was nothing there about saving. Any more clues?

    Cheers, Steve

The pdf files are going to the adobe acrobat folder or to the folder "My documents" If you don't know where your files are stored, do this:

Open your windows explorer and go to search
Then type: *.pdf ---->> hit enter
This action will bring all your pdf files stored in your computer.
Just look at the path, and you will know where your files are.

    In that case you have to change the path on the adobe program going to preferences or another way is going to Registry Editor in windows.

How to change where Firefox saves downloaded files


Firefox by default saves anything that you download -- music, movies, documents, etc. -- to a specific Downloads folder. However, many users aren't aware of where this folder is, and they don't want to have to hunt it down every time to find their downloads.<br /><br />By following the steps below, you can change the location where Firefox saves your downloads. You can have them sent to your desktop, a network folder, a thumb drive, or anywhere else that is accessible from your computer.<br /><br /><span style="font-weight: bold;">To change Firefox's download location:</span><br /><br /><span style="font-weight: bold;">1.</span> Open Firefox.<br /><span style="font-weight: bold;">2.</span> On the menu bar across the top, click <span style="font-weight: bold;">Tools</span>.<br /><span style="font-weight: bold;">3.</span> Select <span style="font-weight: bold;">Options</span> from the drop down menu.<br /><span style="font-weight: bold;">4.</span> If the General tab at the top of the window is not highlighted, select it now.<br /><span style="font-weight: bold;">5.</span> Under the Downloads heading, after "<span style="font-style: italic;">Save files to</span>," click the <span style="font-weight: bold;">Browse </span>button.<br /><span style="font-weight: bold;">6.</span> Choose a folder or location for Firefox to save your downloaded files to. You can create a new folder by highlighting the location where you want the folder to be and clicking the <span style="font-weight: bold;">Make New Folder</span> button in the lower left corner of the window.<br /><span style="font-weight: bold;">7.</span> Once you've selected the folder that you want and it's highlighted, click <span style="font-weight: bold;">OK</span> to close the Browse window.<br /><span style="font-weight: bold;">8.</span> If you would rather have Firefox prompt you where to save files every time you download something, click the circle next to "<span style="font-style: italic;">Always ask me where to save files</span>." (This option is helpful if you want to save different kinds of downloads to different locations.)<br /><span style="font-weight: bold;">9.</span> Click <span style="font-weight: bold;">OK</span> once you are done to close the window and apply the change.

How to move/copy user files to external hard disc (wall or usb powered) so that productivity applications default-save to the external hard disc (virtual drive) folder via...


quite a bit of "what if's there" lol

First of all, yes you CAN re-direct the 'my documents' folder to another location....be it on an internal or external drive volume. This requires careful adjustments to the HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\User Shell Folder

when you do this, you can assign any path to the "my documents" folder, (and also the others listed,) this will be a permanent change and will cause that path to be the new destination for files saved to 'my documents' by the OS. the actual path does not HAVE to even have the word 'documents' in it...you could call it E:\bubbles if you want.

You would continue to 'save' your new docs to 'my documents', the OS would just be interpreting a new and different destination for the Save.

Should that resource become unavailable, you would have to perform a 'save-as' and then specify a valid save location.

If you are doing this because of limited space on your C-drive, well and good, but if not, then consider Drive synchronization software instead.
These software programs allow you to specify single, or multiple folders, to copy files. you would set it up to copy from your pc to the same-named folder(s) on the external drive, and to propagate changes....so it will save files that are new or changed and delete files that were deleted, (this can be suppressed.)

One of the pitfalls of using USB devices is that drive letters are typically assigned automatically. If you do not manually assign a drive letter that is not typically accessed by the fist say....4 USB drives, it is possible for the PC to become confused and start putting files to the wrong USB device. So assign your external a high drive letter like P for portable, and don't forget to include that in the new 'path' you put in the registry.

I hope that answered your questions.

How to move/copy user files to external hard disc (wall or usb powered) so that productivity applications default-save to the external hard disc (virtual drive) foldervia the serial bus rather than to


The answer is simple. Where files are saved by default is determined by the options you set in the software application. For example in Word, go into "File" , choose options and look for "save" on the left side. Then navigate to the drive and folder where you want your docs saved to, and make it the default. Same goes for Excel, and other apps

New printer


Your default system drive is always C: - It only asks you the following:

Where you want to install.
This is where the program installs to and really has no bearing on anything at all.

Where do you want to put you shared library. This creates a folder in some obscure location you'll never find if you don't write it down. I would change it to My Documents but you don't have to.

If in doubt take everything at the default.

Hello, I have a new Canon MP 610 all in one printer/ scanner/ copier. I have installed the software, downloaded drivers. It prints from the PC, makes copies, but it will not scan and save to PC. HELP !!...


in the printer control panel, you can set how the scanner handles the image. You'll need to tell it where and how to scan/save to pc, including folder location. Defaults are usually some obscure file type
