You mean you want to change the format of the document?  That is not possible

No...
When I right-click an attachment I want the default Save As... location (path) to be a location that I set as the default (e.g. desktop)

You meant "Save As.." Location? then follow this.
  1. In Windows XP, click Start, and click Run. In the Open box, type regedit, and then click OK.

    In Windows Vista/Windows 7, click Start, in the Search box, type regedit and press Enter.

    2. Locate the following registry key: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\User Shell Folders

    3. Double-click Personal in the right pane.

    4. Change the value to the path you want. For example:
    C:\TEST, would set the location to the TEST folder.

    5. On the Registry menu, click Exit.

    6. Restart Outlook.

Actually, that did not cause my My Documents folder to change and the link does not address Outlook.

This doesn't fully work, as it simply readdresses the documents pathway for the shortcuts in the programs, and doesn't specifically change it for the program itself. It would be best if you could change this option within outlook, without having to hack the registry and thereby changing the rest of the system.
