When saving an email attachment e.g a word document. As soon as I click on save as it defaults to save in the temp directory. How can I change this.I don't want to always search for my documents I want that to be default any time I get an attachment.

***WARNING-Mucking with the registry can be dangerous***

On the Start menu, click Run.

In the Run dialog box, type regedit, and then click OK.

Locate the following registry key:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\User Shell Folders
In the right pane, double-click Personal.

Change the value to the path that you want to be the default attachment folder.

On the Registry menu, click Exit, and then restart Outlook.

In Word go to Tools, Options, File Locations, Modify and just enter the path where you want to save to for each item.
