Hello and Good Evening Everyone,

            I am wondering how I can get all files created by Microsoft Excel 2013 and Microsoft Word 2013 to save by default to My Documents folder.  Any step by step guide to accomplishing or achieving this goal will be deeply appreciated.

            Thank you

            George

It should be quite easy, actually.

Go to any Office Application (Word, Excel here), Options, and Save. Point the Default File location in the Save option and enter the folder you use for My Documents.

This works well and I use this method myself.

If your looking to do this for more than one person, it can also be configured through Group Policy to disable SkyDrive integration, and set the default path using the Office 2013 Administrative Templates.
