    Saving a file to a folder listed in "Quick Access"

    When I download a pdf file (A billing statement in this case), I would like to select "Save As" and be able to select the folder directly from one of the folders shown in Quick Access that is shown in File Explorer without having to rummage through all the folders on my three drives. Right now, "Save As" causes the folder selection to start with My PC. Is there an easy way for the list of folders in Quick Access to be displayed when I select "Save As" to save the file? Starting in My PC makes me go through the mess of finding the folder in which I want to save the file.

    Thanks for any help.

    Hi keithet,

    You are able to change the default output locations for saving files, but I'm not sure if you can do what you're trying to do.
    How to change your default save locations on Windows 10

    I, too, hate navigating through the Explorer Tree, just to find a single folder. What I have found to be much easier is to set up shortcuts, which it sounds like that's what you've done along your Taskbar. From that point I just download everything to the Desktop and use the Drag & Drop method. Using third party programs, such as Folders Popup, makes it even easier.

    I do hope there is a way to do what you're asking though, as that would be a nice alternative.

    Good luck,
