Outlook Express attachment folder - Change?

  stugra 21:02 01 Jun 2004

Running windows XP Pro, OE 6, all kept updated.

When I go to detach an attachment, OE offers me 'my documents' to put the attachment in. I click on the browse button and move to a folder on my desktop instead.

The problem is, it doesn't point to the desktop folder the next time - it defaults back to my documents, which is a great pain.

More confusingly, my laptop doesn't suffer from this problem - it remembers the new folder I browse to.

Any help regarding this attachment issue is appreciated.

Sorry, I have repeated the thread as I felt I might not have been clear and concise with what I have been asking - for example the thread started to go off on a tangent with someone telling me how folders on the desktop need to be loaded every time windows boots. Why the critisism?

Not a criticism!

Forum users get extremely confused when two nearly identical threads from the same person are running - and then tend to not bohter.

If you rephrase your question in the original post, it will go back to the top of the list and people who have been watching it will look to check on developments.

Ahh, now I understand more. One for all novices to note in the future.

Sorry about the dual thread, I thought it was my fault that I wasn't getting anywhere - didn't mean to confuse.

Thanks to any and all in advance.
