With the new Word, Excel, PowerPoint... 2016, I have to specify "On My Mac" every time want to open a file. I'm never going to save to Sky Drive or One Drive or whatever cloud-based option Microsoft is offering me. (Sorry, Microsoft, I'm happy with Dropbox and Google Drive.) Anyway, is it possible to default to the "On My Mac" option so I don't have to specify "On My Mac" every single time I open a file?
