Outlook 2010 Insert File Location

Hi
I am trying to find a way to stop Outlook remembering the last used location when inserting a file into a mail.
I know how to set a default location which works fine after Outlook is restarted,  but for the entirety of an Outlook session it will remember the last used location when inserting files on subsequent emails.
I understand this is by design to make workflow easier but we need to always revert back to default location when doing an insert on a new mail.
Any ideas?
Thanks

For Outlook 2010, I think you are out of luck. I do not know anyway to do this.

Outlook 2016 gives you a list of documents you have worked on (very handy) with Browse this PC at the bottom.

What you want is totally possible, but involves changing a registry entry.

1. Launch regedit

2. Locate the following subkey in the registry by using Registry Editor: HKEY_CURRENT USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\14.0\Outlook\Options

3. On the Edit menu, point to New, and then click String Value.

4. Type DefaultPath, and then press ENTER.

5. Double-click the DefaultPath value.

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

7. Quit Registry Editor.

This changes the place Outlook shows by default when opening/inserting a file.

Let me know if this works for you.

Thanks for the quick responses.

Unfortunately  the DefaultPath value only affects the Save As location and not the Insert function.

Thanks John.  Your feedback along with the lack of any other suggestions has confirmed my own findings.   Thanks again.
