When you save a file Word puts it in your Documents folder by default. That's a great start, but if you're working on a project and always have to save your file into a subfolder or another location, you can tell Word to go straight there instead. Click on the File tab and then go down to Options. Go to the Save section and look here it says Default file location, and I can see that it's pointing to My Documents folder. Then, click the Browse button, now you can navigate into your subfolders. So I am going to go into Two Trees Olive Oil and I am going to go into my HR Files since that's the project that I am working on and I am going to click OK, and then I'll OK again to close the Word Options window.
Now when I go to save a blank document, it will always default to the subfolder where I directed it. That will save you from having to drill down to the same folder time after time.
