Default Can't save Word 2019 doc to original folder - can you help please?

It's driving me nuts & I've spent hours trying to sort out this very annoying problem. Any help you can give would be very gratefully appreciated!

I've just upgraded from office 2007 to 2019 and I can no longer save a document to its original folder. Instead Word 2019 insists on saving everything to a default file. This is an awful situation as while this can be changed it is a big hassle to have to do this for every document. I use my own file structure where files can be easily located.

To be specific if I change a document and either 'save' or 'save as' the alterations are not saved to the original document in its original location, which is what I need.

Is there any - preferably one keystroke - command to save files in their original folders?

Or do I have to download word 2007 again?



Many thanks

Phil

Word 2019 tries to save to OneDrive by default unless you set it up to work Offline. Is this what is happening?
