Change default save for MS Word 2013 to One Drive

Hey guys,

I am trying to change the default path in Word 2013 so that it saves to my OneDrive and not our Sharepoint site which always comes up first in the list. I tried changing the default path inside Word using this link: http://www.howtogeek.com/129369/how-to-change-the-default-save-location-for-office-2013/

No luck so far, any ideas?

do you have admin rights to change the Save to default location?

where exactly did navigate to after you checked the box Save to Computer by default?

did you click on the button marked Browse?Save to locationFollow the instructions, then click on Browse ―> navigate to where OneDrive is located ―> click on OneDrive ―> click on the OK button

There must be something on your PC that is blocking you... When you navigate to OneDrive, you should use the path (for example)
 My PC ―> C: ―> Users ―> Me ―> OneDrive

I just did it on MY PC and had no trouble.
