Windows 10: Where do I change default location for Microsoft Print to PDF Solved

    Where do I change default location for Microsoft Print to PDF


    Right now, if you select Microsoft Print to PDF under Print, it sends the file to the Documents folder in OneDrive.

    Where do I change the location so it saves it to the Documents folder on the PC?

    Thanks,

    I never opted to turn OneDrive on so mine save to My Documents folder. I believe there are instructions for turning off OneDrive somewhere in the forum if that option appeals to you.

    I just did a test print to PDF and it prompted Port Prompt so I chose the Pictures Folder, worked. I didn't get that the second time, went to Pictures, maybe after the next reboot?

    It's in OneDrive Settings/Auto Save (right click on the cloud on your task bar and choose Settings).

    Thank you for the tip, it worked! I looked there before but obviously not that close.
