I need to change the default settings for the My Documents folder. I need my students to save to their folders instead of to the hard drive for which they are logged into. Is there a way I can set the default save in folder to the current users folder so that they aren't able to save to the hard drive any more?

In Windows 2000, you can go into the properties of of the "My Documents" folder and change the path.

It might still work, have you tried it?

Also, I know in Office you can save the default file location.

Windows 98 My Documents

Windows 98 does not have the same properties options as 2000 how would you go into office to change the target drive?

kcargile,

This should work if all of the students have have MS Office installed on them (this would have to be done on each PC).

Please let me know if this works or not as I have a few more dead fish up my sleeve we can try.

kcargile,

Glad it worked for you.

I have Access, Excel and Ms Publisher ready if you need them.

Also a "Registry Entry" modification (pretty simple) for changing the "Save Attachment To" location in OutLook Express.

Just let me know.

kcargile,

Excel and Access are pretty much the same as Word, but since I have them ready I'll send them anyway. I'll check on PowerPoint (it may be the same to) later.
