How do I default Adobe Reader 9 to "Save a Copy" in a specific location?

The default location to "Save a Copy" in Adobe Reader 9 is My Documents. I'd like to change that to a mapped drive (H:). In Adobe Reader 7 there was a registry key that allowed for this functionality, but I can't seem to find it in 9. Thanks in advance.

    Hi - i don't think you can do this in acrobat. I think it defaults to your "my documents" folder.

    Are you on a  pc or mac?

    on a pc you can change where "my documents" points to by:
    Click Start button
    Right click  "my documents"
    Select properties
    Edit the Target Folder Location field
