File Save Location

I was wondering if anyone could help me fix an issue I am having. I save multiple pdf files (as many as 20 in one sitting) to the same file location deep into my server directory. When I first got my Windows 7 Enterprise, if I "save as", choose a directory on the server, save it, then choose another pdf, when I choose the next one and save as, it defaulted to the place I last saved. For some reason lately when I choose to save another file to the same spot it chooses the default save directory as My Computer then i have to navigate through 10 directories to find the same spot.

I am just trying to speed the process up since the location I save is deep within the server tree. It is just a pain having to choose 10 directories to find the right spot.

Any help would be greatly appreciated in bringing this back to the way it was. Thanks.

This drove me crazy too!

I had a project where I had to open files over and over to the same folder and every time I had to navigate to another drive and through several levels of folders to get to the location.

Here's a post I made on the subject a while back...
