    Libraries and My PC folders in Save As Dialog


    Can anybody help in ADDING Libraries to and REMOVING the This PC folder from the Save As dialog? I know how to remove and add these in File Explorer, but have no luck in finding a solution for the Save As dialog. I found this thread, but when I get to the value to be changed it already is set to that.

    When you have an SSD drive with a secondary HDD for files, you can remap libraries to the HDD but saving files from a program is a problem. I guess another option would be to remap the This PC folders to the HDD and not show the libraries. Anybody know how to do that as an alternative?

    Hello Amy, and welcome to Ten Forums.

    Using the tutorial below to show Libraries in the Navigation Pane should have it show in Save As as well.

    If not, then please post a screenshot showing your Save As dialog to see what the issue may be.

    Thanks for your reply, Brink. I had already enabled Libraries, as well as removing folder locations from This PC by deleting keys from HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\My Computer\NameSpace.

    Attached is a side-by-side screenshot of the navigation pane from File Explorer and a Save As dialog from Microsoft Word. This issue is occurring across multiple machines.

    I just tested in Word 2016, and how odd that turning on to show Libraries in the navigation pane in File Explorer doesn't also get applied in the Save as from Word.

    However, you can use OPTION ONE below in the Save as dialog to show Libraries in it as well.

    That is weird. I didn't think about right clicking in the navigation pane in the save as box as well. That worked. Thanks!!

    What about removing the folder locations from This PC in the Save As dialog? Those links still point to the default library locations.

    The folders in "This PC" are actually linked to the folders in your "C:\Users\(user-name)" profile folder.

    The tutorial below should remove Folders though.
