I look forward to helping you today.

If you manually save the files to the local drive, does it allow you to do so?

I will be standing by, looking forward to your response.

Hello,

Thank you for the update. As you may know, Microsoft made the default saving location OneDrive for some unknown reason.

You configure Windows to save locally instead by following the instructions on the following page: https://support.office.com/en-us/article/Files-save-to-OneDrive-by-default-in-Windows-10-33da0077-770c-4bda-b61e-8c8e8ca70ac7

If you have any questions or concerns later on, please let me know.

Please, do not forget to rate my help on the top of this page by clicking the Stars and clicking the Submit button.

Thank you,

Jason Jones

One Happy CustomerNew York

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
