Hints and Tips

Office File Management

When you choose Open or Save in an Office program, you will see a list of common file locations in the sidebar (eg My Documents, My Computer, Desktop etc). But is everything you want, like your templates folder or where you really keep most of your files, actually listed? Probably not. Try this:

  1. in Word choose File, Open and navigate to the folder you want.
  2. In the Open dialog box, choose Tools, Add to “My Places”

The folder will be appended to the list of file locations in the sidebar. To customise the name, right mouse click the folder in the sidebar and choose Rename. Your new My Places will appear in the Open and Save dialogs in all Office applications.
