Office 2016 - Possible to default to "On My Mac" selection?

jdana used Ask the Experts™
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?

I've never been able to find a way to set this explicitly but generally it will remember the last location you chose to save in.
File Options > Advanced > scroll down near bottom > look for file locations

At least this worked in previous versions...

Good luck.
Note: Instructions are for MS Word....

Failing that - we could possibly force the issue with a macro...


Thanks guys
