Open default program from Outlook attachment

If I receive a word or Excel document and open it straight from outlook it ,opens it in the temp directory,
is there any way of setting it so that any attachment opened from within outlook opens to a specified
default directory. Thanks

Why a C?  Doesn't that workaround work well?  It sure does for me.
