    Save As To Pictures Folder


    I've searched for a solution here and on the web and found no answer. If this has been answered in another thread, I apologize in advance.

    As an example if I "Snip" an image and try to "Save as", it defaults to My PC. Is there a way to default to the Pictures folder? Thanks

    Welcome to tenforums.

    My PC on the left panel of the dialogue box is expandable. Whichever folder you choose to save the 'snip' to, its contents will be on the right panel of the dialogue box. And the folder will be remembered for the next 'snip' whenever the desired target folder is changed.

    Thanks. I didn’t know it made a difference as to which pane you selected the folder from. I would expand My PC in the left pane and select Pictures from that pane. I guess I have to choose it from the right pane. I will get back after my next try.

    Want to be careful in that left pane/column, could have both Quick Access and Libraries above This PC/My PC. The actual Folders are in C:\Users\UserName.

    Thanks. I have “tweeted” it not to display Quick Access” in the left panel. Thanks though. Good point.
