You’ll probably find that whenever you try to save a new document in Microsoft Word it will ask you to either login or redirect you to a folder somewhere completely irrelevant.
Fortunately you can change the default location for this so that it will default to your preferred location.
To change the default save location in Microsoft Word 2016 do the following:
Go to File > Options.
From the left hand menu in the popup, select “Save”
Uncheck “Show addition places for saving, even if sign-in may be required”
Check “Save to computer by default”
Where it says “Default local file location” change this to your desired location.
