How to change the default Save As or Open location – TweakUI

This article was been published more than a year ago. The information may be outdated.

In my last post, I showed you how to use the GPEdit app to change the default Save As/Open locations. There’s another way to do this, using that great little tool called TweakUI.

If you haven’t gotten it already, download and install it before reading on.
Here’s how to make the tweak:

    • Open TweakUI
    • Navigate to the Common Dialogsentry
    • Open the entry called “Places Bar”
    • Set the settings as you want like so:

Tweaked!

  • You have a few predefined places, but you can point it to local folders such as c:\example\foldername or even remote computers such as \\remote.computer.network.net\folder
