Default Icons for different folders

I am both a multi-tasking individual and also am a bit scattered brained. Because of these 2 qualities I often find it difficult to stay organized. I am looking for ways to help me (force me) to put files in the right place. To that end, I was thinking that if I create a separate icon for Word with defaults to save to my "teaching" folder, and a separate icon for Word with defaults to save to my "personal" folder, etc it would help me at least put things in the right ballpark. Do you have any thoughts about this? any suggestions for other ways to do this - utilities, shortcuts, etc?

Thanks!

Default Saving

I'm not sure I understand. Do you mean that you want to set up Word have two default "save to" folders, or simply that you want different icons for folders to which you typically save, so that when you see them in the choices, you are more easily able to Id the correct one in a hurry?

Thanks! I want to have 2 icons on my desktop. The first icon will start word and, when I go to save a document, will automatically put it in a folder called "schoolwork". The second icon will start Word but, when I go to save a document, will automatically put it in a folder called "hobbies".

Default Two icons

This one is out of my league, though I suspect it may not be possible. You are running only one Word, which will have one default saving location. However, it may be that you can create a separate template that will save to a different location.
