I often go into Wordpad, looking for a list of all files in the \Myfiles dir.  But I have to at least 6 steps to get there from Open, choosing the C: drive and drilling down to my directory, then specifying files of type *.*  ; is there a way to change the default dir from Desktop to my own Myfiles dir?  Also I would like the file type to default to *.*

Sounds like a registry setting at the best. I've heard of this problem, but never a solution, so I'm listening.

Drag a shortcut to the desktop, edit shortcut properties, change 'Start in' to c:\mydir.
I think you're stuck with the default document type.
