Default Can I safely remove the Public Folder in Windows 10?

For some reason all Office 2016 Modules defaults to the Public Folder. I have gone into the File>Options and made sure that my folder to which I Save is User\Documents. BUT, each time I go to save a document the program goes to the Public Folder.


I am a single user and will not be sharing anything on the computer. So, I would like to Delete the Public folder and all sub-folders.
My question is, Can I do so safely?

Thanks,
BroJames

Hello Brojames,

Apologies for delayed response.
Before you delete the public folder, ensure that you follow this article (https://support.office.com/en-us/art...e-b78c60dd5d3b) to change the default same location.

Once you have ensured that the default save location has changed, you may delete the public folder.

Regards,
Edwin.
