Changing where my PC looks for files

  csb3 12:28 15 Nov 2005

I am running windows xp on a computer that is linked up to a small network.

Is ther anyway that I can change where my computer looks for files by default?

i would like it so that when I open a file in windows it automatically opens in a specific file/part of the network.

Is there any way I can do this?

What sort of files are you looking for? Office files (Word, Excel)for example?

Hi Taff

Yes, I am looking for office files - mainly word and excel.

smudge101 - thanks for the info but I am looking to change where my pc looks for files within word, not within windows explorer (my documents is already set up to open in a specific file).

Any other suggestions?
