View Full Version : Save As - Shortcuts

25-09-2004, 05:17 PM

Is there any way that I can change the list of shortcuts that are on the left hand side of the save as dialogue box. I would rather have something else there than my recent documents. I am running XP Pro.

I can't be much help except to say I would go to MS support and have a look there. Johnboy is excelletnt with MS support. Put some search words in like "Save as" and "shortcuts". (XP)

If you have the PowerToys for XP, I think you can change the shortcuts in there... Also remember seeing an article about this in a PC World a while ago. Will read through all my old issues and see if I can find it for you.

In which applications are you wanting to "save as" though?

Is this (http://www.puppypc.com/windows/rt/comdlg_placebar.htm) what you're looking for? :D

Thanks for all the help so far. Ideally, what I would like to put there is a shortcut to my memory stick. Having looked at the link from Mark C and XP powertoys, I am not sure if this is possible.

Seems to me you should be looking at "Send To" rather than "Save As'.
