Default Saving new word documents to specific files

Hello. Would somebody please tell me how to save a newly created document when using Microsoft Word so that it goes into a specific file automatically for where I want it to be without me then having to find it and move it physically to where I wanted it in the first place?



Currently any new documents created automatically go into the wrong file where I don't want it to go, so I then have to drag the new document into a file for where I wanted it be in the first place!

Hopefully somebody knows.

Thanks in advance.

Default

Documents get saved in whatever folder you choose to save them to. Save them to the correct folder and you won't have to move them afterwards.

By default, Word saves new files to your Documents folder. If you want to change the default, go to File|Options|Save and change the 'default file location'.
