Changing the default "save to" for attachments in Outlook 2010

Not open for further replies.

Hassan El-Meligy, MSc

If you would like to save (not only one location) you may do the following:-

When having selected the Location from withing Outlook (by selecting desired folder(s)) for instance a folder call MyMailHoveer your mouse on the left area of the window-folder where (the area of the icons with the title save in)Click right-mouse You will see a samll window 'Add MyMail' You may repeat this if you like creating different shortcuts Next time you would like to save, klick the short cut you just have created this will move you diectly to the desired location without having to navigate around

Hope this will help

The Key for 2007 is

HKEY_CURRENT HKEY_CURRENT USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\12.0\Outlook\Options\DefaultPath

The Key for 2010 should be

HKEY_CURRENT HKEY_CURRENT USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\14.0\Outlook\Options\DefaultPath


Hi Hassan, the key for Outlook 2010 does not exist. I have looked around the registry and I can't find any path for saving.

hello again,

Create the folder where you would like to save your mail or attachement to (I assume that you will create a folder somewhere and you call it (myfolder) Now from within outlook when you try to save-as or insert-add-attachemnt do the followingfor instance save as a window asking you to save will appear now locate your folder you created or have already, for instance (myfolder) just select this folder now move to the left side of the window where you can see some pre-made folder (with a top title called 'Save-In'now mouse-right-click on any part of this left side area a small window will pop-up the first item in this window will be called 'Add myfolder' close the window and do not do any saving


when you open the save-as again you will see the 'myfolder' there on the left side you can now click it and go directly to this folder without having do cascade down to ityou may create any number of folder shortcuts you need

Hope this will help
