Microsoft Word may save your files in a default location that you don’t particularly find useful. There’s actually a way to change this and have your default files saved in whatever folder you want.
To do this, open Word, then hit File. Then scroll down on the left-hand side to Options.
There, when the pop-up box is open, open the “save” option on the left-hand side. There, you’ll be able to change the default location.
You can also change a number of other options including the Office Document Cache, and the default format in which you can save files.
