I know that I am lete to this one but I had the same question for Outlook

2007. The solution is simple for me. I am using my Word 2007 as my editor

so I openerd Word and clicked on the Office button at the top left of the

screen, went to Word Options - Save and changed the "Default File Location".

The reults were reflected in Outlook when I click on the atch file icon.

Outlook tends to remember the last used location, so if you select a new

folder from within outlook, it will use it until you change it. For this

reason, I prefer to put the folders on the places bar (xp) or favorites list

(vista/win7) - my most used folders are always 1 click away.

I am using outlook 2007 with win7 - when i use the attach file button - i would like to change the "Look in" folder to the libaries rather than my documents. Is that possible?

You could, but it changes the default folder for everything, not just Outlook. Outlook should remember the last used folder.

We recommend adding the folder(s) you prefer to the Favorites list so they are easy to access.

It does not appear to be remembering the last folder (library). By favorites-do you mean IE favorities bar? That is the only one I am familiar with.

No, Explorer Favorites.

When you click the insert button the Explorer window should have a favorites section in the top left.

You are using windows 7? That looks like the dialog from older Windows.

Wow. I knew compatibility mode caused issues, but didn't realize it used the old dialogs. Thanks for the update.
