XP won't "remember" file path

By fjkdls;afjkl; ·
Often I am processing photo files and then saving to the same folder, but XP won't "remember" the last place I saved a file, so I have to click each folder in the path every time I save. Anything I can do to make XP default to "last place saved" on the file paths, so it will remember the path after the first save?

What application?

Or, what is the name of the default folder?

For most applications, you can go to preferences and change the default file location.

For Windows XP utility programs however, the default folder is ALWAYS My Pictures.

You can change the location of the My Pictures folder so that it is easier to switch to your preferred folder.
Or, you can change the default image folder.
NOTE: If you move the My Pictures folder, or change it's name, ALL Windows programs that use My Pictures will now use the same new default location.
