Go to Home > Options in Word. Go down to the Advanced option and click File
Locations.

There you can set the location for documents, clipart pics, user templates,
etc.

Getting really, really tired of seeing WORD dissolve into snowy white,
fading screens.

Configuration is:

WORD 2010 on Win 7. All my Adobe programs work great pretty much all the
time, so I'm pretty sure I've got an OK graphics card, decent processor and
12 GB of Ram.

When I want to insert a graphic into one of my 100+ page WORD files, a
windows opens up looking for a folder in......

Library > Pictures

That's a folder on my PC's hard drive..... C:\Users\MyLastName dot
COMPANYNAME\Pictures

That's also the default location (except the part, the Pictures folder) for
opening and saving WORD files.

That looks like this:

C:\Users\mylastnameandfirstinitial.COMPANYNAME\Documents\

But everything I actually do is out on the network server, or my small
portion of it, which is NOT on my hard drive.

Most of the time this works OK although I've gotten in to the habit of
saving before I insert any graphic. Applies to both WORD and OUTLOOK, which
also crashes frequently.

Would I be better off with a different default?

The Library Win 7 feature is a little baffling. I found a
support.microsoft.com page that says I can add a location from my part of
the network (my very own K drive), the "technical publications current
projects" folder -- but the right-click option I'm supposed to be seeing
"Include In Library" just doesn't show up.....


What I'm told ------

For Windows 7

Add your preferred picture location to the Pictures library. To do this,
follow these steps:

Click Start, and then click Computer.
Locate the folder that you want to include and right-click the folder.
Click Include in Library, and then select Pictures.
The preferred picture location can be:
A folder that is located on your computer A folder that is located on an
external hard disk drive A folder that is located on the network
-------------------------- is not what I have available.
