Customer Question

I'm not able to save a Windows Word 10 document. I get the error message, "You don't have permission to save in this location. Contact the administrator for permission."
This problem began after my recent upgrade from Win.7 to Win.10.
I also can't bring up my Documents folder. It goes to Pictures when I select My Docs.
Thank you:)
