Outlook 2007 Default Open Folder for Attachments

I have a user with Office 2007 who would like her default folder to be Documents when she goes to add an attachment. It currently is set as the default, but once she attaches a document, the next time she goes to add an attachment the folder defaults to the location of the previous attachment.

I have already verified the registry key is set to Documents (reference: http://www.pcworld.com/article/156699/Change_Outlooks_Default_Attachment_Folder.html), along with the Word 2007 Default File Location is set to Documents (reference: http://windowssecrets.com/forums/showthread.php/136633-Setting-the-Default-Attach-File-Folder-in-Outlook-2007).

Are there any other places I need to check her settings?

If want to set Office 2007 default location you will have to go to Word Options. Look at pick below this will instruction three different ways to set the location. You will probably after making changes close Office and reopen.  

Note:  In Office 2003 you have to make sure Word is your "Default email editor", but in 2007 and above it always use Word for editing.

You can click on the Office Button ------> Word Options

Office Word Option Location

You can perform this action......

Option 1
This option........
Option 2
Finally you can perform option 3 from the registry...

Start ---------> Type: regedit

Navigate to the location below....
HKEY_CURRENT USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\12.0\Outlook\Options

Open in new window

On the Edit menu, point to New, and then click String Value; if it is already there then change the folder location.

Type: DefaultPath, and then press ENTER.

Double-click the DefaultPath value.

In the Edit String dialog box, in the Value data box, type the path, including the drive letter, to the folder that you want to use for your Outlook saved items, and then click OK.

I have verified all of these settings, and they all point to Documents already. The user has said she will just live with it the way it is.

These settings were already set for the user, but the response had pictures and multiple options of things to check, so that was helpful.
